Join educators across the globe who are inspiring students to set their sights to Mars with a Giant Mars Map™, targeted for ages 8–12, designed with curriculum materials developed at Purdue University, based on National Science Standards. Intended to ignite children’s interests in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). The Mars Map and accompanying curriculum, exclusive to ShareSpace, can be integrated within existing curricula, activities, or programs to help enhance the learning environment.
The Giant Mars Map™, a 25' x 25' vinyl floor map depicting a colorful topography of Mars as well as the landing sites of Mars rover missions, allows educators and mentors to motivate children to develop an understanding for real world STEAM-based concepts using the Red Planet as the basis. The paired curriculum, curated by ShareSpace, encompasses language arts, geography, math, science, space exploration, technology, and creative, innovative thinking. Maps are also available in 15' x 15' dimensions which may suit smaller classrooms.
The Giant Mars Map™ may be permanently placed at an educational institution to be enjoyed by future students, or may be used for one-time activities such as workshops and conventions.
