How can humans safely explore Mars?

Project Description

In this interdisciplinary project, students explore the history of space travel and the science of Mars exploration. Student teams use engineering design processes, as well as content knowledge about historical space exploration, conditions on Mars, and the scale of the universe, to identify problems related to Mars exploration and develop inventions that help to solve those problems.
