Take part in a worldwide “teachable moment” and bring students along for the ride as NASA lands a rover on Mars February 18!
The site https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/mission-to-mars-student-challenge/ has all the details of this exciting opportunity for students to take part in activities in designing and building a mission to Mars with a guided education plan and resources from NASA. NASA is inviting schools, classrooms, educational organizations, homeschools, and families to register their students. Students under 18 should be registered by a teacher or guardian. Educators can register once on behalf of their entire classroom or organization.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory website has tons of interesting information on this and other activities for students and teachers.
The live session will kickoff on Jan. 14 at 3 p.m. PST (6 p.m. EST) and the YouTube site is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxJGn5lsiU8
