Journey To Mars

About

Journey To Mars

Mars had conditions suitable for life in its past. Future exploration could uncover evidence of life, answering one of the fundamental mysteries of the cosmos: Does life exist beyond Earth?

Mars is a rich destination for scientific discovery and robotic and human exploration as we expand our presence into the solar system. Its formation and evolution are comparable to Earth, helping us learn more about our own planet's history and future.

There's plenty to do and explore, from drop-in science sessions, where you can strap on a VR headset and jet off to a new world, to stop motion Lego workshops, where you can be the director of your own "Mini Movie". 

For more information and activities, check out the website below.
