Mission X 2020-21 Walk to the Moon challenge begins

The Mission X 2020-21 Walk to the Moon Challenge is now officially open.  As of 13 January, your registered team can complete activities, earn points, and help the Mission X mascots, Luna and Leo, walk to the Moon!

Mission X is an international educational challenge that focuses on health, science, fitness and nutrition, and encourages pupils to train like an astronaut.

The 2020-21 Walk to the Moon Challenge runs from 13 January to 31 May 2021, where teams of students and families complete physical and scientific activities to earn points for their country.  Earned points are translated into steps to help the Mission X mascots walk 384 400 km from Earth to the Moon!

Mission X is designed for students age 8-12, but open to all ages. The challenge is open worldwide for school teams and families (teams must be led by an educator or a parent). Registration remains open throughout the challenge.

Test your skills and train like an astronaut with activities developed by space scientists and fitness professionals working with astronauts and space agencies across the world. For more information and full participation details visit https://www.stem.org.uk/missionx .

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