Space Across the Curriculum:
Lunar/Mars Exploration and Base Construction

This course demonstrates to educators how to teach all science concepts and standards in one exciting project. Participants learn what it will take to establish and maintain a human presence on the Moon and on Mars. Advanced life support concepts such as growing food, oxygen and energy production, waste removal and recycling, and exploration of the surface will be discussed. Hands-on activities for each topic will be completed for immediate integration into the classroom. The final project is designing and building a model of a theoretically functioning Lunar/Mars base that can technically sustain and house astronauts for exploration.
