Mission to Mars
Students will be working as a team to design a community for 100 inhabitants, on Mars. They will determine what needs to be included in the community, the people that need to live in the community, the food, clothing and water that will be needed for survival on Mars. They will be participating in STEM challenges througout this unit as they discover what they would need to survive on Mars.
Quest is a program designed for the intellectually gifted student. This program supports the Mississippi Gifted Outcomes. Units of study are designed to meet the needs of the students with more elaborate, complex and in-depth study. Interest of students is also taken into consideration when units are being designed.
Students will participate in activities which increase critical and creative thinking and expression, written and oral communication, use of the scientific process, problem solving skills, research skill and technology skills. Students in the gifted program will participate in Quest activities one day a week for five hours.
We are looking forward to an exciting year in Quest!
