  • CREW STRENGTH TRAINING in 25th Primary School of Acharnae

    Exploration activities and discovery missions in space require strong muscles and bones, especially due to the reduced gravity environment in spaceships. Therefore, strength training is mandatory for astronauts and consequently for our students who are “learner astronauts”. As such, they learned that in order to safely strength train in space they have to practice proper strength training on Earth. Part of their strength training were exercises that strengthen their upper and lower body muscles and bones, such as body-weight squats and push-ups. In groups the members of “VELOS” performed 10-25 repetitions of each of the above exercises with determination and enthusiasm!

  • In 25th Primary School of Acharnae the spacewalking started from 2013.

    The School Principal , Athina Primikiri (GREECE Country Lead MX 2015) with both astronauts Chris Hadfield and Luca Parmitano started the Space dream in School.
