The European Space Agency school projects will be back this September 2021. With Astro PiClimate DetectivesMission XMoon Camp and CanSat your students can learn about Earth’s environment, train like an astronaut, design a Moon base, develop a “micro-satellite” or program a computer onboard the International Space Station. Choose your favourite, note down the kick-off dates and… teach with space!

Mission X: Train like an astronaut
17 September
Level: 8 to 12 years old

It’s time to get up, move your body, and train like an astronaut! In Mission X, you’ll learn the key elements to keeping fit and staying healthy in space and on Earth. Complete physical exercises and scientific investigations developed by scientists and astronaut trainers. Earn points to help mascots Luna and Leo walk to the Moon.

Mission X is a collaboration between ESA and the UK Space Agency, facilitated by the ESERO network.
