Mere end 150 elever fra Gudenådalens Friskole, Randers Realskole og Stoholm Skole var i går på besøg i Naturvidenskabernes Hus i Bjerringbro. Her fik de besøg af den danske astronaut Andreas Mogensen, der sammen med eleverne gennemførte et astro-stjerneløb.
I sidste uge pakkede vores guide Alexander en bunke velkomstpakker til alle deltagende skoler. De er sendt afsted og skulle ankomme en af de nærmeste dage.
Vi glæder os til at se og høre, hvordan I træner som astronauter!
Tuesday the younger students were invited to come and see The Hellum Fri Team make a presentation of the whole Mission X project.
The team was divided in four groups and the younger students were circulating through all four groups. They heard about strong bones, flying to Mars, saw some of the activities in the gym and they tried for them self to discuss who they would bring to Mars, if they were going up there. In each group they students showed their scaled drawings of their ideas of a spaceship and a space station on Mars.
Many of the Mission X students was a little nervous before the presentation, but after the first round ALL of the students told enthusiastic about the mission and their new knowledge, and it was very good for them to repeat what they had learned and experienced.
At the end all the students gathered and the younger students gave the mission X students a very big applaud and told them it was some very good presentations.
I dag havde vores elever glæden af Professor Jens Dalsgaard Nielsen fra AAU, der i to timer fortalte om sit job med at bygge satellitkomponenter til ISS. Vi var også omkring vores mission: at flytte til Mars. Jens Dalsgaard Nielsen fortalte om de udfordringer der er ved at flytte til Mars, men også at komme derop. En meget spændende dag med meget koncentrerede og engagerede elever - og en meget inspirerende gæsteunderviser :-)
Today our pupils had the pleasure of a two-hour lecture by Professor Jens Dalsgaard Nielsen from the University of Aalborg. Jens Dalsgaard Nielsen told about his job building satellite components for the ISS. We also had the opportunity to get some good information and advice on our other mission: Moving to Mars. The professor told the pupils about the difficulties concerning getting to, and living on, Mars. A very exiting day with some very focused and engaged pupils - and a very inspiring guest teacher
