What is Mars Money?
This resource includes Mars Money! As students earn Mars Money, they can use it to purchase supplies for each STEM challenge. This is an amazing incentive for students to go above and beyond! I have included a color and black line master for you to engage your students with throughout the school year! (You can print the black line masters on red paper!)
What will students do in this challenge?
In this challenge, students will build a ferry boat that must float for 1 minute and survive waves for 1 minute while also keeping Mars and his friends paper cut-outs safe and dry.
