Train Like an Astronaut!
Developed in cooperation with NASA scientists and fitness professionals working directly with astronauts, the Train Like an Astronaut activities are a physical and inquiry-based approach to human health and fitness on Earth and in space. Students can participate in physical activities modeled after the real-life physical requirements of humans traveling in space.
Using the Train Like an Astronaut activities, you can involve your students in structured, hands-on science activities that relate physical Earth-based needs to the requirements of exploring space. You can also assist students in gaining additional understanding of the science behind nutrition and physical fitness.
