6th grade student teams have spent 5 weeks designing plans for colonies to survive on Mars. This is the day they present their scale model and ideas to judges to earn points on a rubric which will determine the winner of this challenge. Groups must highlight their dimensions and reasonings regarding their HAB design, greenhouse, energy plant, system for breathing and waste management plan. Other considerations, including recreation, transportation and natural resources, can also be shared during the presentations. Up to 20 judges needed.
There will be a break between 12:20 and 1:00 for lunch. Need is for ~ 20 judges.
