Mission to Mars is an engaging educational programme, the outcome of a collaboration between Fab Lab Chch, Ara, and Curious Minds.

The aim of the programme - championed by NASA- is to engage students in disciplines including physics, engineering, geology, and biology through the task of planning a mission to Mars and surviving upon arrival.

Our Approach

1. Solve problems creatively
Students take on scientific principals and apply them to create a habitat on Mars that humans can thrive in by designing and creating ecological and technical systems and solutions.

2. Experience using a range of skills
Students are given a taste of the variety of core skills that prepare candidates for the Mission to Mars programme run by NASA..
