Get Me Off This Planet

Young scholars discover how a spacecraft gets from the surface of the Earth to Mars. They investigate rockets and how they are able to get us into space. Finally, the nature of an orbit is discussed as well as how orbits enable us to get from planet to planet - specifically from Earth to Mars. After a lecture/demo, students access websites imbedded in this plan to do further study on space travel.
