Description:

This educational module is designed to teach students about models and data collection and analysis using a Mars Mission as an example. The activities in this module require students to gather observations and data and use this to generate a model that illustrates a real object, in this case, the surface topography of a landing site on Mars. This module allows for students to have increasingly sophisticated experiences with this concept as well as an opportunity to utilize science process skills of observation, data collection, measurement, interpretation, and inferences.
