Description:

In this activity students manipulate materials in order to better understand the concepts of core sampling using candy bars and straws. They work individually and then in groups in order to compare their results. Next they research the websites www.jpl.nasa.gov (more info) or www.mars.asu.edu to find more information about missions to Mars and what we have gathered from sampling rocks on Mars. They also will search the website for examples of core sampling used by geologists when drilling or digging (engineering and geology).
