Bioengineering: To Mars We Grow!

  • Enrichment Courses

Grade Level: Rising 9–11

Join our bioengineering team! We seek to design plant growth chambers to grow plants on Mars. Whether in our on campus section or our Online Academy, students will work with their teacher and teammates to build, observe, and analyze. Students will research what plants would be most useful to the astronauts, design their solutions, and create both non-working and working models. This class will combine a variety of traditional disciplines such as Biology, Environmental Science, and Engineering with a design thinking approach, and will allow students to have a hands-on educational experience while learning remotely.

*Students will need to purchase basic supplies (e.g. tape, glue, seeds, small quantities of soil, etc). A complete list of supplies will be sent to all participants in advance of the class.
