The Cosmic Club is an online astronomy activity in English for kids 8 to 12 years old. Online Club meetings will take place on YouTube where you’ll be able to chat with us and fellow club members! Can’t come to a club meeting? No problem! You can rewatch them online on our YouTube channel.

This virtual meeting is hosted by Nathalie Ouellette, astrophysicist and iREx Associate Director, and Trevor Kjorlien, amateur astronomer from Plateau Astro.

During the club meetings, Nathalie and Trevor answer your questions about space, share amazing space facts and stories, and challenge club members to astronomy challenges for a chance to win cosmic prizes!
