Project Mars Ecosystem
With Roper Mountain, Greenville, South Carolina
We invite you to join our team as we support NASA in determining the best Ecosystem to build on Mars to support life. Students will be working in teams to develop a proposal, to be presented to NASA, with a recommendation for the first Ecosystem to be created on Mars. They will gather evidence to support their claim after reflecting and learning about terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems on Earth. Students will be primarily analyzing the biotic and abiotic factors of Ecosystems.
