NSERC/CRSNG has teamed up with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to bring a once in a lifetime initiative to Canada!

This year, Little Inventors SPACE invites children to turn their imagination to the challenges of living in space with the help of astronaut David Saint-Jacques!

  • Little Inventors encourage children to explore their own creativity and become the inventive thinkers of the future
  • Gives children the freedom and inspiration to use their imagination and their STEAM learning: the results are spectacular!
  • The year's focus is on Space - where innovation, opportunity and the unknown thrive!

The most ingenious ideas will be made into real objects and will be shown in a special exhibition at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum and even be exhibited in space in a special presentation to the International Space Station crew by David Saint-Jacques!
