Christopher Kitzan, Director General of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum

Geoff Aucoin Podcast

Today on the Lixar Podcast, we’re continuing our series on the strength of the Ottawa tech scene. In our last episode we talked to Grant Courville of Blackberry/QNX, who stressed the importance of building a local pool of tech talent and inspiring youth to become passionate about STEM fields.

We have in our studio someone who does just that – Christopher Kitzen, the Director General of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Inspiring today’s youth is his focus every day – through the museums he directs, and through some exciting initiatives he’ll tell you about in this podcast. We’re going to talk about museum curation in the digital age, and how the approach to engage youth is becoming more inclusive and experiential.
