Chemistry of Water: Mars Exploration β€” Is There Water on Mars?
As part of a series of electronic professional development experiences for educators, the NASA Explorer Schools project and the National Science Teachers Association are hosting a 90-minute Web seminar on May 13, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. EDT.
Participants will receive an overview of a NASA inquiry-based lesson, β€œIs There Water on Mars?”. Participating educators will have the opportunity to refresh their knowledge of concepts such as how atmospheric pressure and vapor pressure affect the boiling point of water, and how scientists use that information to deduce if there could be, or ever has been, liquid water on Mars. The featured activity provides many opportunities for incorporating national science, technology, and mathematics learning standards into curricula as well as addressing high school Next Generation Science Standards.
