Live From Mars was active July 1996-December 1997.
There are two worlds of weather -- on Earth and Mars -- waiting for you! Join with other classes to analyze and debate the data that have been collected through the LIVE FROM MARS Weather Worlds activity. Can you find some amazing facts hidden among the data? Do you see a pattern hidden within the facts? Have you looked at a map with all the locations marked? These are just a few of the activities that can be developed from the collected data that are posted here.
You are invited to participate in this part of the Weather Worlds activity whether (pun intended!) you are new to this project or you participated in earlier phases.
Here is the plan:
November 24 - December 2, 8 p.m., EST.
Contribute your clues for a WEATHER WORLDS scavenger hunt using the Earth and/or Mars data provided. Challenge yourself, your students, and others (How about parents? Everyone's interested in the weather!) to find the hidden meaning in all of those numbers.
December 4 - 23
Take the WEATHER WORLDS Challenge! The challenge is available at three levels: elementary, middle and high school.
Any class can join in the search activity. Previous participation in Weather Worlds is not a requirement. The winners at each level will be announced when everyone returns from winter break. All participants will be recognized online and with a printed certificate to display in school for their involvement in the Weather Worlds Challenge.
For grand prize winners at each grade level there will be a truly grand prize, related to LIVE FROM MARS and NASA's missions! Please join classes across the nation. The Scavenger Hunt will be fun and informative!
To participate, answer the Scavenger Hunt questions and send your answers to Eileen Bendixsen: firstname.lastname@example.org. The class that answers the most questions correctly in each level (elementary, middle and high school) will be the winner. A random drawing will be held in case of a tie at any or all levels. All answers must be sent by 12 a.m., PST, Tuesday, December 23, 1997. DO NOT SEND YOUR ANSWERS TO EITHER OF THE TWO MARS MAIL LISTS.
