Hermanas Latinas STEM Conference - South Mountain Community College

Thanks to JPL Solar System Ambassador Dr. Sian Proctor, we were invited to bring the map to South Mountain Community College on November 30th, 2018 for the Hermanas Latinas STEM Conference. Over 100 young women who are interested in STEM had the opportunity to tour Mars in small groups with female and minority graduate students from Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration. They explored the major features of Mars, learned about the landing sites for the InSIGHT mission (which landed successfully only 4 days earlier!) and the Mars 2020 rover, and even re-traced Mark Watney's fictional path through Acidalia Planitia and Arabia Terra!
