1 hour Mission Activity

This immersive space mission activity takes a class of students through a mission to a Martian laboratory in which they must work in teams to solve problems, answer questions and deal with emergencies.

Time is running out and they must return important samples from the red planet, back home to Earth. Drawing on a variety of skills and covering a wide range of curriculum focused tasks, can your team find examples of life on Mars, and get home safely before it is too late? 

Three children celebrate while sat in the Escape Pod of the TetraStar Space Mission.
