Sunday 11th March – also at Aboyne Primary
(Please note date change)
Mars Project Exhibit (all weekend), 11:00 (Sunday) : presentations by after-school science Clubs.
How would you design a permanent long term self-sustainable colony on Mars? This was the challenge which we gave to the three after-school science Clubs we run at Towie, Craigievar and Tarland (which includes Logie Coldstone), and the first question we asked them is “Do you want to take a pet?”
From that simple beginning we have explored both the physical and psychological aspects of being a colonist in a permanent colony on Mars.
We only had two rules as they designed their response: it must be scientifically possible and self-sustainable.
The results will include a series of models showing various aspects of how the youngsters have seen the future and a series of posters showing their designs.
All three Clubs will come together on Sunday to explain their designs to you and to Stuart Dunbar, leader of the SCI-FUN Roadshow who we have invited to critique them.
