Are we ready to live on Mars?
With so much excitement around the Perseverance Mars rover, the SpaceX Starship, and NASA’s Artemis for the Moon, it is clear the new space era has finally arrived. As our species prepares to become interplanetary, there are ample opportunities for students of all ages to to learn about the challenges of living in an isolated, sealed habitat away from planet Earth. SIMOC is a research grade Mars habitat simulation with an elegant web interface. We offer a Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) curriculum for grades 5-8 and 9-14 with teacher and student handbooks designed for you to integrate into your classroom.
SIMOC is free of charge, from partner National Geographic Society.
