Mars Explorers Wanted

On-Demand Summer
Space Camp

Come blast off and launch a lifelong love of all things space and science with Janet's Planet Virtual Astronaut Camp, a camp that creates out of this world engagement with Janet and her team of educators and experts. Each day brings a new mission. You'll Zoom with an astronaut, a pilot, a scientist, a Mars rover specialist, and a mathemagical Genius! You'll have astronaut challenges and hands-on science experiences that will test your budding astronaut skills. Most of all virtual campers will have the opportunity to explore, learn and get a daily dose of science and space that will boost confidence in their STEAM abilities.

Pre-Launch Registration starts soon!

 

Make it local. Take it Global.

Visit our website for free STEM support resources to use before, during, or after the on-demand Virtual STEM Fair experience. Design a Bridge, an earthquake safe building, or a water purification system. The resources on our Experience STEM site provides an opportunity to look at local issues and take it further to global solutions. Use some of the ideas generated to join in the STEM Fair Challenge!

Climate Change: How Can You Tell It Happened? How Can You Tell It’s Happening?

In this presentation, students will learn about the different types of evidence that we use to measure Earth’s climate change. For past climate change, we have to act like a detective and use whatever kinds of clues Earth leaves for us. These kinds of evidence include ice cores, lake deposits, tree rings, and the fossil shells of long-dead organisms. These clues show us that our climate has changed greatly in the past. Not long ago, Chicago was under a mile of ice from a giant glacier! However, we now have a much easier time measuring climate change — with NASA! Not only does NASA send rovers to Mars and astronauts to the moon, but NASA also operates a wide array of satellites that monitor Earth’s temperature, glacier sizes, atmosphere content, forest fire and drought locations, and sea level. These new kids of evidence show that Earth’s climate is once again changing rapidly.

Speaker: Dr. Michael Wysession

Michael Wysession has been a Geophysics Professor at Washington University in St. Louis for 30 years, doing research and teaching about earthquakes. Michael is also an international leader in geoscience literacy and education, and was one of the lead authors of the U.S. Next Generation Science Standards.
