Mars for Earthlings

Mars for Earthlings: Integrating introductory geology with Mars planetary data

Mars for Earthlings seeks to expose undergraduate students to planetary study through Mars remote sensing data and Earth-based analogs. Through this resource instructors/educators/professors can access learning modules to integrate into earth science classes. Interviews and thoughts from planetary scientists and geologists will present current issues in planetary sciences.

The benefits/goals of this project include:

Teaching Materials and Resources


Lesson Modules - Find lessons building on earth-based principles and applied to Mars study. The Lesson Modules are currently being updated and/or revised and will be re-released in November 2013.

Web Resources - A collection of web resources useful for the classroom and lab.

Meet the Scientist - Meet scientists who study Mars and planetary science.

Upcoming Workshops - Learn more about workshops we will be holding related to teaching about Mars.
