Chemistry of Water: Mars Exploration—Is There Water on Mars?
During this Web Seminar, educators learned how to incorporate the Chemistry of Water:
Mars Exploration -- Is There Water on Mars? lesson into their physical science classes.
They received an overview of the inquiry-based lesson and developed an understanding
of how atmospheric pressure and vapor pressure affect the boiling point of water.
Participants found out how research led by NASA has been applied to the search for
water on Mars and how they can share related resources with their students.
This web seminar is part of a series of electronic professional development experiences
sponsored by the NASA Explorer Schools (NES) project. NASA Explorer Schools invests
in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics educators to inspire and engage
a whole generation of future scientists, engineers and technicians that NASA needs
to continue our journey. NES gives educators of grades 4-12 free access to NASA's
people, missions, research, and facilities. We take the work out of searching through
thousands of materials on the NASA website and provide a comprehensive set of teaching
materials for dozens of STEM concepts. For additional information about the NASA
