Space Camp

Reminder – Aspiring Astronauts!
This is a chance-in-a-lifetime opportunity for two Island students. Both prizes include a 6-day space camp at the Cosmodome in Quebec (value $720) plus all travel expenses. This opportunity is open to Island students ONLY. Please refer to the memo (Oct 8, 2014) below for links to Confederation Centre of the Arts for more information and contest regulations. Good luck to all students!
Island students have a unique opportunity to win a “6-Day Space Camp” all-expenses (including airfare) paid prize. To mark the upcoming Col Chris Hadfield lecture event at Confederation Centre of the Arts on October 30, 2014, an essay/video contest is offering two prizes to attend Space Camp at Canada’s Cosmodome in Quebec. There will be one winner for each category: 9-12 yrs and 13-15 yrs — open to Island students only.
The contest deadline has been extended to Oct 20, 2014 which does not leave a lot of time for research and response. However, with an extra-long weekend coming up, there may be some keen “aspiring astronauts” anxious to get a start on essays or videos. More details are available on the Confederation Centre of the Arts web site. Please share this information with your students and other teachers – it is open to ALL students, not just social studies students.
*Note – there is/was a typo on a page of the CCOA web site that states the camp is for 3 days – this is an error. The prize is for 6 days.
