Interested in learning imaging and binary while you are on Mars? We have Imaging and Binary activities
and an Imaging and Resolution lab book
available! These items have a recreation of the first image NASA received of Mars for kids to color by hand!
My aim is to help teachers feel prepared to teach science. We have put together videos for many of these activities for teachers to get a quick overview of projects, learn talking points and more!
