  Using Space to Catalyze Student Interest in Science, Technology and the Future.

Mars Future Flight Hawai`i is a space-themed educational program designed to catalyze a child's interest in science, technology and the future. Using a mission format, the participants experience a variety of training modules to prepare them for their simulated missions to extra-terrestrial sites. Over the past 11 years, over 3500 student and parent participants have voyaged on journeys of exploration to the moon, Mars and our own planet, Earth, the Blue Planet. The Future Flight Hawai`i Mission Control team includes professional educators from the Hawai`i Department of Education. The training modules, mission components and other program elements are designed by the staff educators, with contributions from Hawai`i Space Grant College scientists and NASA resources. Available programs include: Residential (grades 4-7), Day Exploration (grades 3-6), and Family (grades 2-4).
