For Educators

Our programming for formal educators includes teacher professional development workshops, MAVEN-centered curriculum, and other programming—with a special emphasis on those reaching underserved and underrepresented audiences.

Our philosophy is to educate today’s students by capitalizing on the inherent fascination of Mars, Mars exploration, and the differences between our home planet and the cold Red Planet.
