STEM Challenge 2020 - Mars Base CampSTEM Challenge

The race to land humans on Mars is on! The 2020 4‑H STEM Challenge will explore sending a mission to Mars with the activity, Mars Base Camp. Developed by Google and Virginia Cooperative Extension, Mars Base Camp is a collection of activities that teaches kids ages 8-14 STEM skills like mechanical engineering, physics, computer science, and agriculture.

   

Another great resource to get started exploring Mars is the JPL of NASA: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/teach/activity/mission-to-mars-unit/  Our 2019 SET delegation  enjoyed the "Mars Bound" activity
