Mission X Nieuws

  • St Vincent's Primary calling the world from Glasgow!

    Students from St Vincent's Primary in Glasgow have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Mission X Programme. We have participated in a range of Learning activities such as Creative Writing and Astronaut Training. Great fun! We also made some fantastic model Space Craft.
    Thanks to all who provided inspiration and resources! Here's to next year - and beyond!

  • Escuela 9 de Julio - Observatorio Willka wara

    Los niños de la escuela 9 de Julio, participan activamente, están felices y se sienten verdaderos astronautas con sus trajes, diseñados por padres y docentes.


    Una vez más el equipo observadores del futuro finiquito una nueva misión, esta vez los tripulantes realizaron una caminata espacial en las posiciones del Gateado del oso y la caminata del cangrejo, previo calentamiento de los miembros inferiores y superiores del cuerpo. Fue una actividad muy divertida donde los estudiantes fortalecieron los músculos de los brazos y piernas como la coordinación entre sus miembros inferiores y superiores.
    Mostraron una participación colaborativa y de estrategia grupal para la carrera de relevos, siguen dando muestras de una excelente convivencia y buena armonía.

  • Air Resistance

    The Mission X Programme we took part in in St Vincent's formed part of a wider Solar System topic. Students considered how wind resistance had an important role to play to ensure capsules returned safely to Earth. We designed, made and tested our own parachutes before considering what changes might be made to enhance our designs.

  • Build an Astronaut Core

    There was a lot of moaning and groaning when St Vincent's students started doing these exercises! Over the course of the programme however results certainly improved. Evidence? A lot less moaning and groaning!

  • Mission Control

    St Vincent's students found this activity tough! It's not easy keeping your balance while engaged in an activity although we did improve with practice.

  • Crew Assembly

    St Vincent's students tried to replicate what it must be like trying to carry out repairs on a Space Walk by attempting to put together a Jigsaw whilst wearing thick gloves. Very tricky!

  • Explore and Discover

    St Vincent's students set themselves Time Targets and tried to achieve new' Personal Bests' as the weeks progressed.

  • St Vincent's Primary School calling Earth!

    We used little 'wheelie sledges' to immitate the effects of zero gravity

    St Vincent's Primary in Glasgow has been taking part in the Mission X programme for the last three years and have thoroughly enjoyed participating in a variety of innovative and memorable learning experiences. If anyone out there is thinking about we would certainly recommend you have a go! A massive Thank You to Heather and all the crew at Mission X for providing us with the opportunities. We look forward to meeting up with some of you at the Glasgow Science Centre for the finale on the 14th of June. Meanwhile we'd like to leave you with a few of our memories. Over and Out!
