Canadian Space Agency Junior Astronauts
Rating

"The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) recently launched a number of resources and initiatives in support of children and youth, and have asked us to share information about their Junior Astronauts Initiative for teachers, educators, youth group leaders and young Canadians in grades 6 to 9.

By participating in this initiative, teachers, educators and youth group leaders will have an opportunity to win a visit by an astronaut or space expert to their school or youth organization in spring 2020 (2 visits per province/territory). All participants need to do is to register and complete at least one of the available activities.

There are three proposed streams for the activities: science and technology, fitness and nutrition, and teamwork and communications.

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 (four youth per province/territory) will have the opportunity to go to the CSA in Saint-Hubert, Quebec for a week of training by astronauts, scientists and engineers in the summer of 2020. Expenses (travel and accommodation) will be covered by CSA.

In Saskatchewan, Contact: Dean Elliott, 306-787-6765, dean.elliott@gov.sk.ca." (From the Ministry of Education SK)
