The Canadian Space Agency is looking for Junior Astronauts
On November 21, as part of the Junior Astronauts campaign, Danielle Cormier, Mission Controller at the Canadian Space Agency Robotics Mission Control Centre, will challenge some 230 young Canadians to discover what it takes to become an astronaut.
She will also talk about the wide range of career opportunities in the space sector and answer students' questions.
On November 14, Canadian Space Agency astronaut Jenni Sidey-Gibbons provided a virtual presentation to almost 500 students and their teachers, to encourage them to participate in the Junior Astronauts campaign. She also spoke about her experience during the CSA's astronaut recruitment campaign and about the training she received afterwards.
