This lesson is one in a group to have a conference-style workshop day centered on the book The Martian we read as a whole school. Students were able to choose from about 45 options, each run by faculty at our school. You will have the instructions and supplements that were provided to our faculty members running this workshop. If you purchased the bundle, you will receive all of the activities made by members of our staff.
Portraits of Courage provides six examples of courageous pioneers in math, science, and space. Then it invites students to use computers to make their own short biographies on pioneers, giving several example names as well as opening students to the opportunity to make their own.
