NASA Probing Beneath the Surface of Mars Activity

Students will record and graph temperature data to learn about the search for water on Mars. Students will use a model of an ice-rich and ice-free near surface on Mars to examine how the ice content of the Martian soil will affect the rate at which a warm probe will cool. Note: This is a 130 page PDF.
