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.

NASAs Mars Odyssey detected water ice in the northern hemisphere. During the winter months, the icy soil is covered by a thick layer of carbon dioxide (dry ice) frost obscuring the water ice signature.This animation is match-framed to #2779 and #2780. Its purpose is to establish a frame of reference using a true color dataset. In this case, that data is from Viking. Full description.

This map of Mars permits users to zoom and pan across the planet's surface. One can select three views, including a shaded relief map, photographic mosaic (visible spectrum), or an infrared mosaic. The map is searchable by regions, spacecraft landing sites, feature types (mountains, dunes, etc.), or by keyword. More than 100 features are marked with "pushpins" and pop-up windows that provide information ... Full description.

This is an activity about spacecraft that have landed on Mars. Learners will become familiar with the vehicles of two Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder and the rover Sojourner (note: the activity could be easily adapted to be based on more current Mars missions and spacecraft). They will design and build a vehicle with different foods by using diagrams naming the type of equipment ... Full description.

This is a lesson about generating hypotheses and testable questions. Learners will use critical thinking and a collaborative approach to pose questions related to the study of Mars and evaluate the quality of their questions. They will explore remote-sensing data collected by a camera orbiting Mars - the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) and develop a team science question. Students will practice ...
