Live From Mars was a precursor to Mars Team Online.
Live From Mars Program 4
| "Destination Mars" will carry students from the launches of Mars
Global Surveyor and Mars Pathfinder through Pathfinder's landing
and Sojourner's deployment. It will incorporate the best student
interactions from the earlier live programs and the most engaging
and informative responses from NASA's Mars mission team. It will
include some of the hands-on demonstrations featured earlier, and
thus--along with this Guide and the project's online resources--provide
new adopters of Live From Mars with a complete orientation to the
project. It will also feature updates on both Pathfinder and Surveyor,
including a first look at the imagery and science data that have
already been received (though MGS will only just have arrived in
September to begin four months of aerobraking to lower itself into
its final mapping orbit.)
Since the content of the program is a compilation of the "best" of what's gone before, we suggest you choose from the activities already proposed for Programs 1 - 3. Online you will find teacher input selected from discuss-lfm, with comments about how best to implement these Activities in the classroom. In some ways, therefore, what you'll be able to do in fall 1997 should be even more powerful than what we've initially suggested, since you'll be standing on the shoulders of your colleagues who already implemented Live From Mars and contributed new creativity to the project.
