The Martian - Ideas to Engage Students


#1

I’m looking for some ideas. What specific problems/challenges/missions could you give to students who are interested in the book/upcoming movie “The Martian”?

I recently finished reading the book by Andy Weir “The Martian”. It was a great book and gave me a lot to think about. I’m very excited to see the movie when it comes out in October of 2015. Check out the trailer here if you haven’t seen it.

During our August Webinar Carlos Fiebig from Universidad Austral de Chile shared the idea of using the trailer for the movie as a tool to get students excited about completing Arduino-based challenges. I love this idea! It captures the spirit of the Ardusat Missions! Check out the YouTube video they made
