Last summer I was involved with more Mars work (but notice the small “r” and “s”). I wrote some curriculum links for a new project by Wero Creative that uses graphic novels to get kids into science and technology. The Rock Mars project is a story about Alex and Zazi, two friends who help astronauts with their trip to colonize Mars in the year 2030. The graphic novel is entirely deliverable on-line, and has a number of web-based challenges the kids must complete in order to move forward in their mission. The project is currently being field tested by teachers in the York Region District School Board; preliminary results look good!
