Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut
An international educational challenge, focusing on fitness and nutrition, that encourages students to train like an astronaut.
Teams of students complete activities to earn points and help the Mission X mascots, Luna and Leo, walk to the Moon. Two sets of hands-on classroom activities support the challenge: physical activities, which help students develop strength, endurance, coordination, and spatial awareness; and scientific activities which focus on STEM subjects and allow students to practice scientific reasoning and teamwork.
Target age: 8-12, but activities can be adapted for all ages!
