Mission to Mars is an eight-unit curriculum involving engineering design activities that culminate in a final project of designing and building a habitat on Mars.
Each Space Club mission (a series of 8-10 lessons) includes:
- Teacher tool kit with materials, lesson plans, project examples, video resources and websites, and extension activities.
- Student handouts (editable Google Slides) that guide students through the engineering design process. Teachers can print or assign virtually. English and Spanish versions available.
- Digital instruction:
- Student instructional videos led by a team of engineers that provide real-world and career connections, science content, NASA missions, and explanation for engineering design challenges.
- Interactive quizzes will engage students and test knowledge learned during missions. Quizzes are hosted on the popular learning platform, Kahoot!
This curriculum can be implemented at home, in school, or at camp. Teachers may choose for their students to work in teams or individually.
