Parachuting on Mars - Developing Crosscutting Breakthrough Technologies

Target Audience: Educators of Grades 5-8

Join NASA’s Beginning Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Educators for a free 60-minute educator professional development webinar where participants will learn how NASA is developing large, sturdy, and lightweight systems to deliver the next generation of rovers and landers to Mars. Future robotic missions to Mars and human exploration of the Red Planet will require massive payloads to be delivered to the surface. Learn ways to share this research with students in a hands-on activity. Using NASA’S BEST Engineering Design Process, participants will design a prototype of new drag devices to potentially land humans, habitats, and rovers safely on Mars.

Hosted by NASAs Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) Office of Education
