Mars In The Classroom


  • The project is themed around the students planning their own manned mission to Mars, and comprises a series of modules to be carried out in small groups.
  • The experiments within each module of Mars in the Classroom can be used either as stand-alone projects or in combination with any or all of the other modules provided. In this way, the educator has complete control over the duration and level of the program undertaken.
  • The aim of the project is to provide a stimulating program that can compliment the National Curriculum, introducing students (and educators!) to the excitement of planetary science.
