Free Educator Workshop: Journey to M*A*R*S* — Being Mobile on Mars
Are you ready to go on a Journey to Mars? Join NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center Office of Education for a free educator professional development workshop on Being Mobile on Mars. Through hands-on experiments and physical demonstrations, educators will learn how to design and construct a rover for Mars using the Beginning Engineering Science & Technology, or BEST, curriculum and the engineering design process.
Participants will engage in hands-on, standards-aligned mathematics, science and engineering activities as they construct a rover, predict its performance and chance of mission success, and test drive it. Learn about real-world connections with NASA research and our Journey to Mars.
The workshop will take place Wednesday, April 6, 2016, 4:30-6 p.m. PDT at NASA’s Armstrong Educator Resource Center at the AERO Institute in Palmdale, California.
