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.

    Astro Charlie

    Astro Charlie is eager to get his Training underway and see the World as he trains for his mission in January 2015. He needs your help to get physically fit and learn about making healthly food choices. The more each of you work on the train like an astronaut activities the more Astro CHARLIE will learn right along with you.

    El Equipo Astroneruda logró una mejor comunicación, comunicación asertiva y facilidad para expresarse, mediante la realización de las misiones que alcanzamos a realizar. Mejoró su expresión escrita consignando en el Diario de la Misión y socializando a sus compañeros estos escritos, que reflejan los sentires, expectativas y alegrías vividas durante la Misión X.

  • HUESOS VIVOS, HUESOS FUERTES

    Continuación de la misión Huesos vivos, huesos fuertes. Las tripulantes del Equipo Astroneruda comprendieron la necesidad de hacer ejercicio diariamente y tener una dieta balanceada. Durante los días de desarrollo de la misión, hicieron varias hipótesis de cómo construir un modelo de hueso que soporte el mayor peso posible y construyeron sus modelos en cartón, yeso, botellas de plástico y yeso.

  • HUESOS VIVOS, HUESOS FUERTES

    Esta misión se desarrolló en el laboratorio del colegio. Los tripulantes del Equipo Astroneruda cumplieron en su mayoría con las normas de seguridad y los materiales solicitados. Identificaron maneras de mantener los huesos sanos y fuertes, además con la construcción de modelos óseos observaron los efectos de la gravedad reducida.
