In this interactive exercise, students in grade 6 and up determine if a Mars rover should look for evidence of life on or underneath the Martian surface. To make this determination, students process visual and textual information about how four factors (cosmic radiation, ultraviolet radiation, temperature, and presence of water) impact Earth and Mars. They look at each factor in isolation by reading a brief explanation of its effect on life, analyzing cartoon-like images of its influence on Earth and Mars, and clicking to indicate if the factor would permit life beneath the Martian surface. Once they answer this question correctly for all four factors, students counsel NASA to outfit a rover for either surface or below-surface exploration.
