It takes a village…

Getting kids hooked on science and space is no easy task. We couldn't do it without the help of our many collaborators and everyone at the Canadian Space Agency and across Canada who are supporting the Junior Astronauts campaign.

The following organizations kindly provided activities for the Junior Astronauts campaign:

Organization Activity
Canadian Olympic School Program Give Your Everything: Be a Champion for Life
Cosmodôme Under (Air) Pressure: Bernoulli's Principle
European Space Agency and Kids Code Jeunesse Astro Pi: Mission Zero
Let's Talk Science Living Space
Zone01 Robotics Astrobot Challenge

The Lunar Resupply Mission was developed in collaboration with Brilliant Labs, while the Giant Floor Map program featured in A Map That's Out of This World! was developed in partnership with Canadian Geographic Education and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.

The fitness activities were developed in collaboration with the Personnel Support Programs of the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services, who also supported the and Astronaut Recruitment Campaigns. Input and feedback was provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

All nutrition activities were reviewed by Health Canada. Aurora College provided input and adaptations for northern and Indigenous populations, and Ingenium provided the curriculum links for these activities.

The BIG Little Science Centre, the Saskatchewan Science Centre and a few teachers also tested some of the activities.

Western University's Institute for Earth and Space Exploration is helping us bring the Junior Astronauts Campaign to Canada's North and communities across the country by working with Actua, the Canadian Association of Science Centres, Elephant Thoughts, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, the Canadian Association for Girls in Science, Connected North, Partners in Research and Scientists in School.

Thank you all for helping us inspire Canadian youth and get them excited about STEM!

We are already hard at work with a number of partners to build an amazing training camp for our Junior Astronauts next summer. Stay tuned to learn more!
