However, we decided we may need Shaq's shoebox to store everything. Arcola School is located 12 miles west of Fort Wayne, IN. We're a small rural school with 287 students. Every year we study Mars in our class. We culminate the course with a "trip to Mars", giving groups of students 8 large pieces of plastic and duct tape to create a habitat on Mars. It's a great project! Thanks for this one. It was great motivation for the kids. Go Pathfinder!
