Invisible Mars Science On a Sphere
MAVEN will use the existing national Science On a Sphere program to develop a facilitated program about Mars science. The Science On a Sphere program uses a room-sized, global display system to project planetary data onto a six-foot-diameter suspended sphere. The Sphere is used to explain complex planetary processes in a way that is simultaneously intuitive and captivating.
The MAVEN Science On a Sphere project, called Invisible Mars, will bring the science of MAVEN to the general public through Science On a Sphere installations in conjunction with the Science On a Sphere Network, the Association for Science-Technology Centers meetings, and via remote technologies. The project will also include professional development opportunities for museum practitioners.
For more information about the project, or if you are a museum-based staff member seeking to add your name to our professional development distribution list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Invisible Mars inquiry” in the subject line.
