Canadian Science Challenge
Canadian Science Challenge is calling all young Canadian scientists and engineers! This contest hosted by the Canadian Space Agency will see a classroom’s experiment performed by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield on his next trip to Space Station.
The real-time experiment will be streamed live using an Earth to space connection at the winners’ school. Using a list of materials already on board the International Space Station, Canadian students under the age of 19 can design an experiment to determine any effects in zero gravity. This contest is about accessibility and inspiring the next generation.
The contest runs from September 14 to December 31, 2012. Submissions can be made as classrooms or teams through the “At School” category or individually as part of the “At Home” category. The Canadian Science Challenge is opened to Canadians under the age of 19 years old. The experiment must take a maximum of 20 minutes for the astronaut in orbit including set up and take down.
