Mars Mapping Project: Engaging All Students

The Giant Mars and Moon Mapping project engages all students through hands-on, experiential learning about space exploration. Schools are working hard to prepare students for jobs that may not currently exist. In an effort to make learning exciting for all students the Aldrin Foundation has made science fiction a reality inside the classroom. Two school superintendents and local university partners share how this project has ignited a passion for learning with all students in their districts.
