Your students become a part of the Pathfinder team and learn how to calculate liftoff, arrival times, and the length of a journey to Mars. Coupled with Crustal Encounter, Space: The Final Frontier, or Fossil Dig, you can enact a simulation based upon current events and NASA procedures and data. While advancing from cadet to chief astrogator, your students learn how to navigate in space.
