Chandler Environmental Education Center - December Star Party

Thanks to JPL Solar System Ambassador Suzan Bawolek, we were invited to bring the "Walk on Mars" map to the Chandler Environmental Education Center's December Star Party on December 7th, 2018. This was our first event where we only used the North and South polar maps, since there wasn't enough floor space to unroll the global map. We used the two polar maps to teach participants about how the polar caps on Mars are different from the polar caps on Earth and how we use color to show elevation. We also answered lots of questions about the InSIGHT mission, which had landed on Mars less than two weeks earlier.
