Il traguardo è ormai vicino!
Dopo più di un mese di preparazione, oltre mille piccoli aspiranti astronauti italiani hanno migliorato la loro forma fisica grazie al costante allenamento e alla sana alimentazione, partecipando a “Mission X – Allenati come un astronauta”.
L’incontro conclusivo del programma si terrà il prossimo 9 aprile a Torino, presso ALTEC: l’evento vedrà la partecipazione di circa 300 studenti. Ospite speciale dell’evento sarà l’astronauta italiano dell’ESA Roberto Vittori, che racconterà ai ragazzi la sua vita in orbita, le straordinarie tre esperienze vissute a bordo della Stazione Spaziale Internazionale e risponderà alle tante curiosità dei giovani studenti.
Un fitto programma di attività accoglierà i 300 partecipanti: sono previste una visita alle infrastrutture di ALTEC, che saranno “raccontate” da personale qualificato, la visione di video sullo spazio, la partecipazione a divertenti giochi educativi di natura spaziale e nutrizionale.

Gli alunni si sono immedesimati, con grande divertimento e partecipazione, nelle esercitazioni da astronauti.
Hanno svolto le attività proposte ottenendo sempre migliori risultati sia nelle attività motorie che nella coesione di gruppo.
Hanno mostrato interesse anche per l'astronomia e la ricerca spaziale, documentandosi a casa ed a scuola.
Speriamo che qualcuno di loro, da grande, voglia davvero andare a fare "Un salto sulla Luna!"

On March 28th the after-care students in Sharon Team USA were given a very special treat-we watched US astronaut Chris Cassidy and his Russian crew launch in a Soyuz rocket to the ISS!
It was so exciting to see and hear New England native astronaut Cassidy (along with his crew-mates, Pavel and Alexander) rocket into orbit, we were joined by many of the teachers and after-care staff. Since all of the children had recently taken part in Mission X or the junior lead-up activities for the younger grades, it was so exciting to watch them cheer and applaud as the rocket rose into the night sky. Many of the youngsters earlier had made posters to display in school to show their support for the crew, as we declared it "Chris Cassidy Week" at Heights Elementary.
We will watch you orbit overhead in the sky, have a safe and most enjoyable journey!!
Go Mission X!!!!!!!!!!

Bonjour à tous !
Notre mission s'est terminée le jeudi 21 mars à la Cité de l'espace à Toulouse où nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer Claire Dramas . Elle nous a offert des cadeaux liés à la mission Explore .
Nous avons beaucoup aimé les activités et le travail menés autour de ce projet.
Mardi 19 avril, un ingénieur du CNES viendra nous rencontrer pour nous parler de son travail et de l'espace.
Au revoir !

We had our closing event. Please find the attached mission x newsletter and selected photo's
This was a great way to end the program for our school and community.
Other than all the activities and information the students learned regarding space and the impact on our bodies, environment and learning, they were introduced to 3 new languages (basic phrases) and enjoyed sharing in this global program with schools from around the world.
Well done to NASA and their partners for a truly great learning experience.

Mission X Parent Challenge
Train like an astronaut will end for us on March the 8th. We issued a FITNESS CHALLENGE to all parents and while we are at it, all adults. As our students will be working hard to maintain their fitness, learn about proper nutrition and hydration, including basic anatomy and physiology the next 46 days, we wanted our adults to be involved! All it would take is sit ups (curl ups), push ups (feet or knees), squats and the FEBRUARY MILE A DAY (walk or run). Just a few minutes out of their day to increase their leg, core and upper body strength and endurance while setting a life changing example for their child. If they were keen to accept the challenge they would join the Mission X Parent Challenge. This was were a whole community was looking forward to cheering them on:)

Students in K to 4 were also assessed on being "thinkers and problem solvers" as they had to construct their own model satellites. To really place the emphases on problem solving I did not review the model plans and construction in advance, so that the students and I would need to figure out where each section was to go. Once again our students stepped up to the challenge and seem energized to solve the puzzles with dialogue and sharing when they realized I was trying to get to grips with the construction too. Their eagerness to share their conclusions and solutions before the teacher made for a lively learning environment. I am pleased to announce that after much debate, approx. 200m of cello tape and an appreciation of the complexity of being a NASA engineer, each child completed their satellite. These will be hung in "mission control" (new PE media room) and will go home with them when the train like an astronaut challenge comes to a close in March.
