Lockheed Martin's STEM education initiative for the middle level offers standards-based lesson plans, educator guides, and family activities to motivate students to learn about deep space exploration. The resources introduce a range of STEM-focused careers in space exploration, compare and contrast differences between life in space and on Earth, and illustrate challenges of a furute Mars mission. NASA is working toward putting humans on Mars, and the first crew to visit the red planet is likely in middle school right now: They might just be your students!
