Each success and misstep prepares students for the challenges that lie ahead.
Mapping Mars Replaces the Book Report
Eighth-grade students were tasked with reading The Martian by Andy Weir over the summer. Instead of writing a traditional book report, students retraced the steps of the main character Mark Watney as he traversed the planet to find his way back to Earth. Students embarked on a project that combined English, Physics, and Art to map Mars using data from NASA, and a series of tools available in the Innovation Center. Watch the video below to hear what students thought of this innovative project.
