This set of interactive activities addresses the question of whether life could exist on Mars. Four separate activities look at what is necessary for life, where one might find water on Mars, would life be on or below the planet's surface as indicated by temperature, and where it would be safe and interesting to land a rover to look for life.

This activity focuses on the relationship between science of looking for life and the tools, on vehicles such as the Mars Rover, that make it possible. Learners will create their own models of a Mars rover. They determine what tools would be necessary to help them better understand Mars (and something about life on Mars/its habitability). Then they work in teams to complete a design challenge where ... Full description.
