Book a Mars Lab experience
The Mars Lab offers highly interactive, incredibly exciting and truly innovative educational programs. Linking strongly with the national science curriculum, Mars Lab programs include a growing range of:
- full lesson units (ranging from 1-6 weeks) designed to provide comprehensive, creative alternative ways for teachers to cover specific curriculum areas
- virtual excursions that run for 2-3 hours and are led by our Mars Lab team via video conference
- special event video conferences and panel discussions with Mars exploration specialists from around the world.
A fantastic way to inspire students, Mars Lab provides unique opportunities for live interactions between students, scientists and engineers, and gives young people the opportunity to experience the thrill and challenge of exploration from their classroom by teleoperating a sophisticated robotic rover across the Mars Yard.
