Through a series of fun and challenging tasks, kids will attend “classes” as part of their special training required to become an astronaut on a mission to Mars: Space Pilot, Space Living, Space Engineer, Space Scientist and Space Gym. Each topic is accompanied by missions—physical and mental challenges, as well activities designed to mimic the skills involved in real-life training! Kids will tackle hand-eye coordination exercises and obstacle courses and learn how to build a balloon rocket as well as first aid skills. There are stickers, a poster and even a model space shuttle!
