JASON Expedition: Mysteries of Earth and Mars

The JASON Expedition: Mysteries of Earth and Mars (www.jason.org) challenges students and teachers in grades 5-8 to learn about Earth and Mars by investigating comparisons between the two planets. Using expedition-based activities integrated throughout the program’s curriculum, students and teachers can study motions and forces, transfer of energies, physical geology, geological processes, electromagnetism, structures and functions in living systems, as well as diversity and adaptation of organisms in extreme environments. The program, which will be released early this summer, is geared toward students who NASA feels will one day take them to the Red Planet.
