ASU Mars Space Flight Facility
Moeur Bldg. Room 131, Tempe, AZ 85287

Overview of Institute, Field Trip and Hands-on Workshop:
This institute will have three main educational goals for teachers:
1) To help teachers understand the process of science (using current Mars exploration as the primary example);
2) To show how scientists can compare rocks and minerals on terrestrial planets (such as Earth and Mars) to learn about the history of the planet; and
3) To highlight the methods in which scientists can interpret data they collect through remote sensing methods (e.g., spacecraft at Mars).

Dr. Phil Christensen will be leading this institute and is a proponent of connecting space scientists and educators together to create unique, world-class learning experiences. Join us for an extraordinary time of immersive learning that you can share with your students!
