    In this session the people we support learn about healthy foods and which foods they would pick to support them in space and out of space. They also learned fat content in the foods that were chosen

  • Tiger Team Crunch

    Cadets link arms to perform crunches as a team

    Cadets work together as flights (small groups) and do a ring-crunch by linking arms, then coordinating the movement 'up' to a full crunch...objective is to do as many as a group in a minute.

  • Tiger Core

    Yoga Flow for Core Strength

    Cadets use yoga flow as part of the warm-up for physical training; the yoga exercises help to establish strong core muscles and help with balance and agility.

  • Battle Buddies

    Agility and Strength in the tire flip

    Cadets from AFJROTC WA-952 participated in a 2-hour 'warrior day' exercise at the University of Portland where they worked through agility, speed and strength in an attempt to out score the university cadets...mud, sweat, and tears; and a lot of smiles as they knocked out at least 10,000 steps each on the course!

  • Another Great Week of Mission X!

    We made some strong "bones!"

    Many great activities were completed this week and last week. Our favorite was Taste in Space! It took some bravery and trust on the part of the Bronchos, but they did a great job, and learned a lot about their own sense of taste as well as how micro-gravity can affect an astronaut's sense of taste. Okay, we also found out that we really like...and really don't like some foods we tasted! Lemon juice? Wow!

    We are also very excited to Skype with Mr. Muniz's class in Madrid, Spain this week! We will be recording that event and posting it in our next blog!

    Good Luck and Have Fun!
