The Government of Canada has announced the launch of the CubeSats Initiative in Canada for STEM (CUBICS). Through CUBICS, Canadian Space Agency experts will guide postsecondary professors and students as they work in teams to develop projects focused on advancing knowledge in areas like climate change. CSA will award up to $3.4M to up to 12 teams to develop an end-to-end CubeSat or standalone scientific instrument or experiment. The CSA hopes to launch new CUBICS opportunities every three years, adapted to the need and level of expertise of student teams toprepare students to be competitive candidates for Canada’s space sector workforce.
