Space Exploration Kit for Cub Scouts

The Space Exploration Kit is the product of a collaboration between Canada Science and Technology Museum and Scouts Canada's STEM program. The kit provides activity cards and material for six STEM projects that can be done over the course of a few weeks in Pack meetings, or on a weekend camp.

The kit contains:

  • Activity cards: These cards include some background information, 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 of the activity.
  • 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.

The activities in the kit are designed around the theme of space exploration. They focus on different aspects of space technology and life o the International Space Station. Cubs can review the description of the activities and choose which ones they would like to work on. The kit is a 85L plastic storage box that weights around 6kgs. Each level will have a laminated image attached to it that will show how the materials should be put in. There will also be a checklist for all the materials.
