Mission to Mars
This resource was funded by the Spacelink Learning Foundation and written by Sheffield Hallam University. It is aimed at students between 11 and 14 years of age. The resource is based around the Beagle 2 mission to Mars. The students have five main tasks: • Work in a team to prepare a short drama about the plight of Beagle 2 • Identify the likely problems that could have caused the Beagle 2 failure • Design, build and test a parachute for a Mars lander • Calculate the basic measurements of a parachute suitable for use on Mars • Design a model for a Mars lander. The activities for this resource are described in the Student activities book, with a reduced version in the Log book which also acts as a record of achievement for students. There are also Teacher notes which describe the objectives, outcomes and resources required.
