Calling all budding astronauts
Mission X - Train like an Astronaut
An international educational challenge, focusing on fitness and nutrition. Families can register as a team to complete activities and earn points and help the Mission X mascots, Luna and Leo, walk to the Moon.
Two sets of hands-on activities support the challenge: physical activities, which help students develop strength, endurance, and coordination; and scientific activities which focus on STEM subjects and allow students to practice scientific reasoning and teamwork.
This is targeted at KS2 children, but activities can be adapted for KS1. Teams can now upload activities and earn points until 4 th September. To read more and sign up, click here: https://www.stem.org.uk/missionx
