Journey to Mars

Years 5-6, Science show

So far Mars looks like the best candidate for finding life in the Solar System. It seems to have a lot in common with Earth.

Where is Mars and why does it attract so much scientific attention?

In this 30 minute science show, students will be engaged in exploring the differences and similarities between Mars and Earth. The possibility that Mars may have once been suitable to harbour life will also be explored.

This visually rich program will also present very recent discoveries made by NASA's Mars rover, Curiosity.
