Earth to Mars Engineer Design Challenge

Program Overview

For Grades 9-10

The students of today may very well be called on to create the technology and design the mechanisms to allow for habitation on Mars. In order to prepare our students to think like the engineers of tomorrow, we need to challenge them with unique, creative design challenges that spark imagination and provide opportunities for brainstorming and rapid design iteration.

In the Earth to Mars Engineer Design Challenge, students will discuss and display knowledge of engineering design, basic needs for a Martian habitat, and creative habitat structure design for use on Mars.
