The MARS MISSION Summer School 2018 is designed so as to promote collaboration among teachers and engage them in inspiring interactive sessions. 

Participating teachers will be invited to work in small groups and complete a set of challenges that simulate a mission to Mars. Through this set of challenges participating teachers will be introduced to inquiry and interdisciplinary learning while they will also get acquainted with methods and techniques that will allow them to promote gender balance and manage diversity in their classroom. During the sessions, teachers will be encouraged discuss ideas and exchange experiences.

The course will last for 6 days, consisting of 25 hours in total. The course includes mostly hands-on workshops accompanied by presentations and reflection sessions. 

Certain sessions of the summer school will be dedicated into analyzing the challenges the teachers will participate in and on building future collaboration between participants. Finally, special attention will be given to collecting feedback from participants through discussion and reflection activities.
