Empower, Excite, and Engage!

9/26/23 – 12/5/23

Be the engineering guide for a group of students as they launch a mission to grow plants on Mars!

Through weekly meetups, students create a dynamic Project Proposal, which includes
designing, planning, and collaboration with aerospace subject matter experts and other students. By
the end of the term, students will be exposed to the basics of project management, considerations for
the spaceflight environment, and basics of habitat design.

As a mentor, you are the engineering guide for an assigned student group. Through weekly tag-ups, you
answer questions and guide the design thought process of students as they form the greenhouse.

No previous plant experience needed, only enthusiasm for getting students involved in STEM! Please sign up if you’re interested in this low time-commitment/high impact mentoring opportunity by Tuesday 9/12 at this link
