Description


Mars City Foundation

believes that in order for the next generation to benefit from today's exponentially growing technology, in an effort to colonize Mars within the next 10 years, more education about Mars must be integrated into schools' curriculum.

Mars City Foundation introduces the Power Lab to help the Mars generation to develop the skills, build the tools and the technology necessary for their time and mission.

Power Lab is a 2-week "science retreat" where students will have the opportunity to workshop ideas with experts from NASA and other organizations with cross disciplinary expertise to begin tangibly building the technology and tools to build our future life on Mars.
