The seniors at Senior Adult Day Hab (The Resource Center, Jamestown, NY) were very excited to be involved in the Mission X program. They look forward to future assignments that are going to be presented to them.
Their first assignment was to take core samples and bring them back to home base. We simulated this by using low weight weights that had balloons tied to them. We put the balloons on the end of the weights so that they can be easily seen and felt. We had some diverse ways that this happened to include Phil (who is blind) and Carole (who is in a wheel chair) were able to complete the tasks. The team was impressed by just how well they did and the team leaders were very proud of their team as well.
Students at Bonner Elementary were very excited to begin Mission X this week! Students are putting their creative touches on their mission journals and cannot wait to complete their first mission! We also checked in to see Astro Charlie's progress to the moon! GO Mission X !!
The Fluvanna Fire Balls Welcomed Scott Townsend to The Resource Center in Jamestown, NY U.S.A. Scott was here today to observe what we are doing with the Train Like An Astronaut, Mission X program. The Resource Center is helping NASA pilot Mission X program for people with disabilities. Our participants demonstrated “Mission Control”, and “Do a Space- Walk.” The local radio station and local newspaper came and interviewed Scott and others related to the program. Scott took lots of pictures of the wonderful decorations we have made for our Mission X including; our solar system, robot that talks, and many rockets. A big thanks to Scott for coming to visit us and spur us on to The Moon!
