University of Toronto Schools Accepted into SSEP

University of Toronto Schools (UTS) has been accepted into the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) Mission 8 to the International Space Station.

>UTS is the third school in Canada and the first high school in Ontario to participate in this program.

The SSEP program is a Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics initiative, promoting scientific innovation and research, the program gives participating communities the ability to design and propose real microgravity experiments to fly on the International Space Station. As part of the Flight Experimental Design Competition, UTS student teams- grade 9 students working in small groups along with senior students providing mentorship– will design microgravity flight experiments and submit well-crafted, formal proposals that will undergo a rigorous evaluation in a competitive setting. After a final decision on the top project, this experiment will be launched from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station to be performed simultaneously in space and on Earth.

CSS partnership with this program hopes to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Participating in the SSEP program is costly, we want you to help UTS to get to space, the school has recently undertaken crowndfunding efforts by launching a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the project, click herefor details.

To support this initiative, make a pledge through the Kickstarter campaign, and/or make a donation directly through the CSS here. Be sure to include SSEP-8 in your message to us.

We hope you join us in the excitement of this out of this world opportunity!
