Mission to Mars Teacher Workshop

Saturday, November 2, 2013 - Teacher Workshop

Workshop will be held at Yerkes Observatory from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.


In the twentieth century, the challenge was to get to the moon and back. The challenge in the new millennium is to get to Mars and back!

Would you like to join a team of fellow educators to develop a plan for NASA? Join us on November 2, 2013, as teams replicate the engineering design process used by NASA to develop space missions. Utilize your budget, decide the science questions to be answered, and then build the spacecraft for the mission. Lastly, present your team mission plan to Yerkes scientists for funding decisions. This REALLY IS Rocket Science! We hope you will join us!
