Mars Base Camp (4-H STEM Challenge)

ONLINE or IN-PERSON TBD

Activities in this project explore sending a mission to Mars. There are four main activities: Mars exploration by modeling launching, landing and exploring the planet’s surface; using engineering design principles to build and drive a rover; a game that teaches about Mars’ natural environment and agriculture; and a coding activity where participants created animated stories about what they’ve learned in the project. Ideally we will meet in-person, but online is also a possibility; depends on numbers and participants’ comfort levels.
