About


Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut is an international educational challenge focusing on fitness and nutrition as we encourage students to train like an astronaut.

Mission X is focused on fitness and nutrition because we know that a healthy body is necessary to be a Fit Explorer! The World Health Organization has designated childhood obesity as one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century - and diet, physical activity, and health are the best answers to this largely preventable problem.

  • ALLENARSI PER L'EQUILIBRIO

    work in progress!

  • Das Forschermobil gibt den Geist auf

    Heute versuchte das Forscherteam mit dem Marsmobil und den Ausrüstungsgegenständen eine unbekannte Ecke zu erforschen. Plötzlich seltsame Geräusche des Fahrzeuges. Wie sollte die Besatzung mit ihrer Ausrüstung zurückkommen? Als Ersatz gab es 4 Handwägen (Leitern) um alle Mitglieder und Ausrüstungssgegenstände wieder sicher zurückzubringen.

    Außerdem haben wir ein menschliches Förderband entwickelt. Einige Kinder rollen gleichzeitig über Matten und transportieren so einen Forscher weiter.

    Als Abschluss haben wir dann Krebsball gespielt. Wer vom Ball getroffen wird, kann als Krebs die anderen Mitspieler fangen. Erwischt ein Krebs einen Ball und kann ein stehendes Kind abschießen, darf er wieder aufstehen. Das Spielfeld kann verkleinert werden, wodurch das Spiel wesentlich schneller und anspruchsvoller wird.

  • Crew Strength Training

  • Base Station Walk Back

    Base Station Walk Back

    Day 1 of MissionX 15! It was a great day here in El Paso to make some endurance workout. Nice temperatures and sunshine made it comfortable to run long distances - but take care: drink a lot! rest!

    Tag 1 bei der MissionX 15! Ein perfekter Tag, um sich ums Ausdauertraining zu kümmern. Warme Temperaturen und Sonnenschein sorgten dafür, dass die Motivation hoch war, lange Distanzen zu laufen - aber aufgepasst: Viel trinken und pausieren!

  • Barnham School complete- Planet you go, Gravity you find

    We had to run as fast as we could across the halls to a set of weights.

    We picked up the weights safely with a straight back whilst squating. completed 5 lifts before running back to the beginning for the next person to do the same.

    We then tried to beat our time on our next go.

  • Barnham School build and astronaut core

    We had to do cycles of 10 push up, 10 sit ups, 10 leg lifts and then do the plank for 30 seconds.

    We had to use our abdominal muscles to help improve our core. We could feel our abdominal muscles working hard.

    It was hard but really fun.

    We finished off with a competition with the whole class and teacher to see who could do a plank for the longest.

  • Barnham do an Astro Agility course

    We had to go in and out of different chairs, ensuring that we didnt touch the chairs to show our spacial awareness.

    We then had to use our skills of balance to stay on a beam.

    We then had to hop on each foot through a ladder, then change over to the other leg.

    We then finished on push ups before running back to the starting point.

    This helped us to improve our spacial awareness, movement skills, co-ordination and speed.

  • Barnham Explore and Discover

    We had to speed walk across to the end of the hall and squat to pick up a weight. We then held it close to our chest and speed walked back to put it back down, repeating this until we had collected and put each weight back in the starting position.

    We used our bisep and triceps in our arms and our quad muscles in our legs for added control.
