New Interactive Education Event from NASA’s Digital Learning Network: Surviving and Thriving on Mars
NASA's Digital Learning Network, or DLN, is presenting a new videoconferencing event focusing on the challenges that must be met in order to survive a long-duration stay on the planet Mars.
Join the DLN via a virtual classroom to explore the movie "The Martian," and discuss some of the challenges NASA astronauts must overcome to survive on the Red Planet. Throughout the program, we will reference scenes from the movie to determine if the events presented are science fiction or science fact. The lesson focuses on why we want to travel to Mars, the shelter that is needed to survive there, the protocols needed to maintain health during long-duration space travel and the communication technologies necessary in order to survive and thrive on the fourth planet from the sun.
As schedules allow, subject matter experts from NASA’s Mars investigations will join interactively with those classrooms participating in these modules.
