Canadian Space Agency to Host 9th Edition of Educators Conference

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is holding its annual Educators Space Conference this week for 150 educators from across Canada in what has become a very popular event as evidenced by a waiting list of educators wanting to attend.


During the three day event which started today, educators will come away with material that is designed for primary and secondary curriculums. More than 1000 teachers have attended the conference since 2002.
CSA engineers and scientists will lead the conference in a workshop format to promote interaction between educators and CSA personnel.
With new material available to them teachers will then be able to go back to their classrooms and share the knowledge gained with their students.
For details on the Conference, visit the Canadian Space Agency website:

Educators will be encouraged to post Twitter updates about their experience throughout the conference on @CSA_ASC (@ASC_CSA in French) or their personal account. The hashtag used will be #CSA_Edu (was #CSAEdu).
