Do you think you could live on another planet? In this program presented by Lawrence Hall of Science, you will blast off into cutting-edge science as you investigate ways to survive on Mars! Together we will design and test systems for providing water, oxygen, warmth, and more on a Martian colony. You will gain a deeper understanding of Mars, our most habitable neighbor; learn how we can identify potentially habitable planets; and explore the engineering design process.

  • Day 1 will involve a discussion about what's needed to survive on Mars, including oxygen, shelter, food, water and an activity to design and build a model greenhouse.
  • Day 2 will involve finishing the design challenge from the previous day and, if time allows, designing and building a model water filter.

If you can make it both days, great! But it's also ok if you can only attend one day. This event is for kids only, grade levels 3rd-6th (8-12 years old).
