The Space Exploration Kit is the product of a collaboration between the Canada Science and Technology Museum and Scout Canada’s STEM program. The kit provides activity cards and materials for seven STEM projects that can be done over the course of a few weeks in Pack meetings, or during a weekend camp. The kit contains:
- Activity cards: These cards include some background information and instructions on how to plan, do and review the activities. They also list the materials that are needed for each activity and the approximate amount of time it takes to complete each part.
- Activity materials and equipment: Most of the materials and equipment needed for completing the activities are in the kit. In some cases, materials will need to be provided; those items are specified on the activity cards.
- Background Information and Scouter Manual: This document includes more detailed information about the STEM concepts behind each activity, supporting documents for each activity, and some alternative additional activities that complement the package.
