Mission to Mars

Fifth Grade Students Prep Missions to Mars

Our fifth graders completed a hands-on, teamwork-based project called ‘Marsbound’. After studying NASA’s current strategies and goals for Mars exploration, student teams posed their own questions about Mars discovery and proposed a mission that would collect data needed to answer their queries.

The students created prototypes of space exploration vehicles (rovers), presented their designs to classmates, and offered feedback to their peer groups. With their creative ingenuity and ceaseless drive on full display, it seems to be only a matter of time before Keys fifth graders become the first humans to reach the Red Planet.
