Mission X Train Like an Astronaut is a free educational programme developed by space scientists and fitness professionals working with astronauts and space agencies across the world.

Mission X uses the excitement of space exploration to inspire students to learn about science, nutrition, exercise and space! It is aimed at students aged 8 to 12 but the activities can be adapted to suit other ages.

The international challenge for Mission X runs each year from January to May. During the challenge, countries from across the world encourage their students to complete the mission challenges. Each country is made up of teams who complete activities and track their points. At the end of the mission, all of the submitted points help the Mission X mascot, Astro Charlie, walk to the Moon!

Get started by downloading the Welcome Guide (for teachers) below.
