Ready for Mars!

It’s estimated that in the late 2020s we are going to have the first people living on the red planet. What will it take to live there? How are we going to bring more people to the surface? How can we explore a planet with almost no atmosphere? Students will find these answers and more as they learn about natural resources and the process for water filtration, and practice fine motor skills flying drones through a drone obstacle course. Students will end class by taking home their own drones!
