  • Taste In Space

    Today we explored how our sense of smell impacts our ability to taste food with Taste In Space. Our guinea pigs tasted two flavors of coffee, fruit punch, orange juice, chocolate pudding and blueberry yogurt. It was a very interesting and fun experiment. Then we watched them do the experiment on the ISS! Lots of cool science related questions were discussed after watching the video.

    We also continued our strength and endurance training by doing squats, push-ups and laps. Our goal is to keep beating our previous week's record.

    Go Team!

  • Le Lycee International de Los Angeles pret pour le départ

    Nous voila prêt pour partir en mission en tant qu'astronaute! C'est le lancement du projet et nous sommes totalement investi pour parler de nos rêves, de nos angoisses, de nos difficultés. Nous formons une sacre équipe et nous sommes prêts sous le commandement de Mme Decriem à attaquer notre programme d'entrainement!

  • Week 1 on the Run!

    Earl Harris Elementary has hit the ground running for week one of Walk to the Moon! In our science classroom we have analyzed our diets through Energy of an Astronaut. We are all going to try to eat more balanced diets with the right calories for the next six weeks! In physical education we worked on balance with Mission: Control, and found the effect of gravity on strength in Planet you Go: Gravity you Find. But the big news is that Mrs. Stewart's class has pulled into an early lead by completing two activities during homeroom time! With Speed of Light and Crew Strength Training, her class has 200 points more than any of the other three! We will see if anyone has the strength and determination to catch up!

    Good Luck Teams! And Have Fun!

  • Base Station walkback week 1/2

    Along with the groups in Team TRC we walked 4 laps around the 1st floor hallway. They Also did a baton and ball pass to practice on their coordination. The Group seemed to enjoy themselves and were somewhat taken aback when the time was over. Looking forward to next week.
