Come join NASA’s Human Research Program Education and Outreach (HRPEO) team to learn and engage in Health and Physical Education (PE) activities called “Train Like an Astronaut” (TLA). TLA is geared towards 8-12 year-olds and uses the excitement of space exploration to challenge students to set physical fitness and health goals, practice physical fitness activities, and learn about proper nutrition to enable them to become our next generation of fit explorers! These activities are based on the work done by NASA scientists to help prepare astronauts for spaceflight before, during, and after they return from space. Go.nasa.gov/spacefit
