Spaced out students get astronaut training

Logan Janes of Hillsboro and Aiden Schmidt and Christian Becker of Marion recently attended camps at Hutchinson’s Cosmosphere.

Space 101, which Janes and Schmidt attended, was a weeklong introductory astronaut training camp for middle school students, emphasizing teamwork, leadership, and problem solving.

Becker attended Space 301, a weeklong astronaut training camp for students entering ninth grade. Campers refined their skills on simulators for stress, centrifuge, multi-axis trainers and mission controls, learned about NASA career opportunities, and visited Johnson Space Center in Houston.
