    Walking to the  moon!!!

    The Pembroke Pines Charter East Eagles donned pedometers are recorded their steps in an effort to literally " walk to the moon!!"
    Based on our Train Like An Astronaut information we learned that:

    The average distance from the earth to the moon is 238,857 miles or 384,403 km.
    It would take the average human 478 MILLION steps to get to the moon, and at a speed of 3 mph or 4.8 km/h, it would take 79,619 hours. If you walked by yourself, and did not stop, it would take you about 9 YEARS to get to the moon.

    We obviously didn't reach the moon by did earn more than enough miles to walk to various points of interest within the United States!!!

    Teachers  take it to the school's track !!!
  • Our Last Run

    Though it is late in the game I wanted to add our last run! In April The Bronchos challenged each other as individuals to run the 26.2 miles it takes to total a marathon like the challenge in 26.2 with Tim! We had students and teachers running and walking around the playground, with their families at home, to and from school, and even during our reward time on Fridays! Many of us completed the challenge, and hundreds of miles were completed among the 125 Bronchos involved in Mission X. We will be presenting awards to those who completed 26.2 miles in our final awards ceremony this Friday at our school!

    Thank you, NASA, for allowing us to participate in Mission X. We have learned so much and enjoyed training like an astronaut! We will see you next year!
