Junior Astronauts wanted!

The Canadian Space Agency asks science centres and museums to help recruit future astronauts!

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) recently launched the Junior Astronauts campaign for teachers, educators, youth group leaders and young Canadians in grades 6 to 9. 

Run Junior Astronauts activities in your science centre or museum

By running Junior Astronauts activities in your science centre, you will have an opportunity to win a visit by an astronaut or space expert to your organization in spring 2020. All you have to do is register and complete at least one of the activities available on the Junior Astronauts website with a youth group in any of the proposed streams: science and technology, fitness and nutrition, and teamwork and communications. The CSA will randomly select schools and organizations from every province and territory. The more streams you participate in, the more chances you will have (up to three)!

Young Canadians who complete at least one activity in each of the streams can apply to take part in the CSA’s Junior Astronauts recruitment. Selected youth from across Canada will have the opportunity to go to the Canadian Space Agency in Saint-Hubert, Quebec for a week of training by astronauts, scientists and engineers.

Visit the Junior Astronauts website to learn more and register! You can also subscribe to an email list for timely updates about the campaign.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation by working to transform existing relationships to emphasize open dialogue, mutual understanding and respectful collaborations.
