Walk on Mars Map Event-January 11, 2019
Posted on 12/11/2018
Walk on Mars Map EventOn Friday, January 11, 2019 TCA will be hosting the Walk on Mars map at our North Auxiliary gym for the entire day.  Over 500 students in 6th, 7th, 8th grades at TCA North, and some high school students, including College Pathways, will have the opportunity to spend time interacting with the map and volunteer leaders. At times to be designated in the afternoon on that Friday (make sure to read the school newsletters or check with you principal after the holidays) the gym will be open for parents of elementary kids to bring their students for an approximate 45-minute session on the map. 

About the map

The 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft and the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) have been acquiring infrared images of Mars for more than 16 years. The best-quality images from the mission have been compiled into a global mosaic at 100 m/pixel resolution and printed on a walk able basketball court-size vinyl mat to spread awareness and excitement about Mars exploration!
