    Just before getting to that point where search and discussion on how we cook and eat, how we should cook and eat and how astronauts cook and eat begins... e.s.a. gave us the perfect idea- plus a recipe- to do some... space cooking.

    After rolling like comets (space rock-n-roll mission, check!) the little astronauts rolled into the high school's chemistry lab to learn that gravity sometimes cannot stop you from... tasting space in your plate. Our high school's chemistry professor was awarded several michelin stars from our students for excelling at a recipe we named "Comet-hunting in a pot". Kids had a great time, discovering more about space material , ingredients for life, and comets!

  • Hydration Station

    Hydration is very important for children especially when they are running all day long. My goal was to underline that our athletic or school performance is dependent on hydration. Imagine astronauts who work all day under difficult circumstances what are their hydration needs. So we counted the number of liquids we drink each day either milk, juice, water, soda and we decided the amount of liquids that is healthy for us, let alone when we do sports or exercise. So children made a drawing of a man walking, jogging, and running and his needs of water.

  • Energy of an astronaut

    energy needed

    We started this activity by brainstorming. Children drawed to a piece of paper their ideas on how many activities they perform daily, activities that demand energy. The next step was to investigate the sources of energy and try to count scientifically the amount of energy taken which is counted in calories. Our next activity was centered around our breakfast's calories, and the teacher asked the question who can perform more activities and stay out in our school yard running more than the othersq Of course the one who had a good breakfast. Children told us what they had for breakfast and we looked into the internet for the calories, so each child wrote down the suggested food for nreakfast and the amount fo calories taken.
