Astronaut Graduation

Jeremy Curtis from the UK Space Agency was on hand to congratulate astronauts at the closing event at MMCC. Students thanked rocket scientists Jon London and Out of This World Learning, staff and the UK Space Agency for a fantastic Mission experience. Students and parents from Bentfield, St. Mary's, Henham and Ugley and Elsenham were on hand with some fantastic displays about Mission X in their school. Several schools have kindly lent us their displays so we can show you what Mission Xers have been up to in the UK at the Mission X London 2012 event.

Bridget Mars Rover visits MMCC

. 150 students met Bridget, the Mars Rover, took part in Mission X challenges on the playing fields, and found about the importance of oxygen in screaming jelly babies. Students tested food samples for sugar and protein content and had a chance to work as teams on crew assembly tasks. We even managed to skype with Cristina in the Netherlands and Tim in the States.

Los Niños de Sirius - Haz una caminata espacial

Con mucho sol y sonrisas hicieron de cangrejos y osos, Los Niños de Sirius. El esfuerzo fue grande, los ánimos mucho más.
Cangrejos y osos corrieron, brincaron y sonrieron durante toda la prueba y al final se sentaron juntos a hidratarse y tomar un rico refrigerio.

Los Niños de Sirius - Desarrollar un "núcleo" muscular de astronauta

El ejercicio tomó por sorpresa a Los Niños de Sirius, quienes con mucha fuerza y entusiasmo realizaron esta actividad. Los profesores encargados de los niños también nos sorprendimos, pues la resistencia física superó nuestras expectativas.

HUESOS VIVOS , HUESOS FUERTES. EQUIPO CIBERESPACIO XXIII. FACATATIVA - I.E.M.JUAN XXIII- PRADO

CONCENTRADOS PARA LA PRUEBA

EN ESTA ACTIVIDAD LOS NIÑOS APRENDIERON Y SE DIVERTIERON MUCHO EN ESTA ACTIVIDAD, YA QUE OBSERVARON LOS HUESOS DE POLLO Y A LA VEZ DISEÑARON UN MODELO ÓSEO Y COMPITIERON ENTRE ELLOS MISMOS, PARA VER CUAL ERA EL MÁS FUERTE.

ATENTOS A LA EXPLICACIÓN OBSERVACIÓN ÓSEA TRABAJO EN EQUIPO

Saltando , saltando a la luna llegamos - astro recorrido

cuanto saltos haré

Con esta actividad nuestros musculos y huesos se ponen más fuertes.

ahora en caballito ahora astro recorrido aqui voy

Saltar a la luna

Todos listos para empezar

Hemos iniciado con entusiasmo nuestras pruebas físicas

Con animo ya casi voy a terminar ahora salto alterno ahora con desplazamiento

Subanautas , Atletas del espacio y Caminantes del universo aprendiendo más sobre alimentación

Un alimento delicioso listo para el experimento

En esta actividad continuamos aprendiendo acerca de la alimentación, como algunos alimentos que se ven tan deliciosos pueden perjudicar nuestro organismo

ahora a licuar las papas y la hamburguesa ahora a calentar la emulsión  luego pasar al envase para llevar al refrigerador

Subanautas , Atletas del espacio y Caminantes del universo aprendiendo más sobre alimentación

Aprender sobre la sana alimentación y como algunos de los alimentos que muchas veces vemos tan deliciosos tienen gran cantidad de grasa que perjudican a nuestro organismo fue importante para nosotros

El Pulso de Sirius

Los Niños de Sirius - Explora y Descubre

"Exploramos y descubrimos cómo medir mi pulso y el de mi compañero. Antes de empezar mis actividades nos hidratamos y nos preparamos mentalmente para hacer 5 recorridos con otro peso que no era el nuestro.
Fue emocionante mirar las diferencias de los pulsos de todos y cumplir con toda la actividad".

Speed of Light

We measured out reaction using a 30 cm ruler. If ruler was missed- a 'miss' is recorded and experiement repeated.
We used a stress ball after the the first 10 attempts.
This is one of 7 groups in the class.

Reaction before exercise (cms) Reaction after exercise (cms)
1 miss - 26 16
2 19 11
3 miss- 30 23
4 miss- 30 30
5 miss- 27 29
6 17 26
7 14 18
8 19 21
9 20 21

Explore and Discover

4 students. 2 teams of control medics mission explorers. Megan C, James J, Matthew I, Daniel M. Each took turns with their role.
The medic took the mission explorers pulse before and after the activity.The medic asked the mission explorer how they felt. The items carried from the exploration area were pieces of a telescope. The activity took 28 mins, walking to and from the exploration area in the room. The results showed that the heart rate increased after the activity for the mission explorer.
Photos will hopefully be downlaoded.
The data from this experiment will be uploaded soon as well.

The Speed of Light

Official write up of space club data.

Hypothesis: Physical exercise has a positive effect upon reaction speed.

All the following experiments are in chronological order and were performed in a total time of 30 mins.

Experiment one: the test subjects timed how long it took to react to an event (the dropping of a ruler). The reading uncertainty of this mission was plus or minus two seconds (one second uncertainty at the start of the experiment, one at the end).

(in retrospect, this experiment was poorly done, and should have used the method of experiment four)

Experiment two: the test subjects repeatedly squeezed a foam ball, and recorded how long it took their wrists to grow tired (reading uncertainty of plus or minus two seconds (one at the start, one at the end))

Crabtree Junior School - Mission Accomplished

Year 5 at Crabtree Junior School meet Astro Charlie and the Flat Fit Kids in their wonderful space themed classroom.

To infinity and beyond at Crabtree Junior School Harpenden

60 Year 5 students have been venturing into infinity and beyond in Hertfordshire. Astro Charlie and The Flat Fit Kids popped into congratulate the young space explorers on accomplishing their mission. Mission Controller Miss Wilson has developed a whole terms worth of space related activity linked with Mission X.
