Desert Mirage Elementary School (Grades 6, 7 & 8)
Thanks to JPL Solar System Ambassador Dr. Baron Summers, we were invited to bring the map to Desert Mirage Elementary School in Glendale, AZ on November 16th, 2018. All of the school's 6th, 7th and 8th grade students had the opportunity to take of tour of Mars, see the landing site for the upcoming InSIGHT mission (which landed successfully 10 days later), and the recently-announced landing site for the Mars 2020 rover. Desert Mirage also volunteered to help us test out our new "Introduction to Mars" powerpoint, which the teachers reviewed with their students the day before we brought the map. Thanks to that early introduction to Mars, the students came to the map with lots of great questions about Mars geography and exploration!
