With NASA making plans to try to send a group of astronauts to Mars by the 2030s, there is a lot of new interest in designing space settlements. This activity has students design a space facility. In doing this they will need to solve the problems that arise because of the conditions that exist on Mars.
Students start by researching conditions on Mars and understanding the issues those conditions pose for space explorers. They they answer 10 questions directing their designs to come up with solutions to these problems....
Finally they draw a diagram of the facility, space suit and transportation vehicle they have designed.
You can add on to this product by having students present their facilities.
I do this in groups of 2-3.
