annocement-1.png

This project aims to deliver interactive experiences to youth across all Canadian provinces and territories through multiple streams: an educational and interactive website, an adaptation of the Mission Control Academy, in-class workshops and activities, virtual presentations, teacher training workshops, and camp programs. 

These hands-on learning experiences will educate youth on the use of AI-enabled robotics such as machine learning, career options in AI, and the development of robotic arm missions. 

Objectives: 

- To raise awareness of Canadian space science, technologies, and missions related to the Moon.
- To use space technologies as a tool to inspire youth to be engaged with STEM disciplines, in particular STEM activities linked to Lunar Gateway.
- To inspire Canadian youth to pursue a career in STEM fields by developing their interests in artificial intelligence and robotics.
- To provide resources and training to teachers to increase their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for teaching STEM topics to young Canadians.

Collaborators:

Western Space, Western Engineering, Ingenium, Steamlabs, and Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants.
