Jefferson Elementary School (Winona, MN) Receives Mars Map

The gym at Jefferson Elementary STEM School was transformed into a space rover testing area on Friday morning, April 21, 2016, complete with a giant floor map of the surface of Mars gifted by ShareSpace Foundation. The first-grade classes had spent the week preparing for Friday’s activity. It was about landing a model Mars rover without it breaking or tipping over, and without losing the astronaut, a marshmallow tucked inside. Jefferson students will be able to learn on the Mars Map year-round thanks to this out-of-the-world educational resource!
