What a wonderful two days of Mission trips to the ISS! Students and families had an exciting time seeing teams Guardians of the Galaxy, Comet, Pluto and Supernova put their forensic and investigation skills to the test in the shuttle. Thanks to all families who supported the efforts that went into this fun week!

Countdown to Mission!

Candidates spent the week in final preparation for their upcoming mission launches that will occur next week on either Wednesday February 15 or Thursday February 16.

All candidates have studied the basics of each of the science specialties. While they’ll individually be assigned and trained for a specific role, they may be called on at any time to use their skills and knowledge from each of the specialties for the benefit of their upcoming mission. Specialties include cryptography, biometrics, necropsy, and poison. Students will also be assigned team positions that include a communications expert, team engineer, mediator, physician, and spokesperson.

On Thursday, students completed official candidate bios detailing their educational experience, their assigned specialty, individual strengths, memorable moments from their candidate training, and anticipations of their upcoming launches. The official bios will be available for viewing on February 15 and 16.

Lastly, candidates have been meticulously reviewing top-secret case files to gain critical background information and have also been preparing for the press conferences that will occur both before and after their launches.

Team launch dates and times noted here here. We look forward to seeing you next week!
