MYP Mission Control

MYP Mission Control

A collaboration with NAROM at the Andøya Space Center

A group of students from MYPA and MYPB participated in a simulated scenario in which they adopted the roles required to co-ordinate a space mission to repair a broken satellite.  Within their “Mission Control” they had to collaborate, collect and analyse data and think critically, to safely send an astronaut on a space walk then return them to the space rocket safely.  This was run in collaboration with NAROM at the Andøya Space Centre, who joined the students in the classroom via Skype.
