We have just been visited by martians who ate hot green chile cheeseburgers at Sparky's in Hatch. They are now demanding that we provide them with this fantastic green plant. 6,7, and 8th grade scientists are needed to collaborate to find a way to help Martians grow their own HOT chile on their cold planet. 6th grade scientists will need to calculate planet rotations to determine the best time to launch a mission. They will design and build a rover to deliver the seed. 7th grade scientists will be studying genetics and developing the hottest variety for seed, and designing a lightweight greenhouse that will grow chile on Mars. 8th grade scientists will be studying soil and water qualities and learning how to test each for quality assurance. They will create a perfect medium to grow chile and a light weight container to ship it to Mars. Join us to look at and learn about these Mission to Mars plans.
