Junior Astronauts Wanted – a Campaign for Canadian Educators and Youth


Canada is part of the NASA-led Lunar Gateway program, and the Junior Astronauts campaign will allow Canadian youth to test their skills and knowledge, understand how they can play a role in this important endeavour and get excited about space and science. Activities that are designed for youth in grades 6 to 9 and focused on three streams — science and technology, fitness and nutrition, and communications and teamwork — are available on the Junior Astronauts portal. There are also downloadable educational activities and an opportunity for Grade 6-9 students to join the upcoming Junior Astronaut Recruitment.
