Some fundamentals of chemistry, geology, astronomy, engineering and biology will be used to investigate the terrain, atmosphere and possible life for the fourth planet from our sun. In addition to the natural sciences, members will develop skills in team building, communication and computer literacy.
Participants will have a combination of lectures, hands-on experiences, and field trips.
