Middle School Science Minute
Middle School Science Minute: Back to Mars
I was recently reading the July/August 2020 issue of “Science Scope” a publication, for middle school teachers, of the National Science Teaching Association.
In this issue, I read the Scope on the Skies column written by Bob Riddle. The title of the article was “Back to Mars.”
July 2020 provided an opening window for missions to Mars. During this window, which occurs every 26 months, a trip to Mars can be completed with 7 – 9 months. The first launch of the month was by the United Arab Emirates Mars Mission on July 19. The second launch of the month was by the China National Space Administration on July 23. The third launch of the month was the NASA and Space X on July 30. All launches were successful.

Look for your host, Todd Bloch, to have a middle school topic all ready to go! Make it a strategic part of your personal professional development.
Create a Google Slide Presentation (or web site) with links to things that an “App” would provide.
teachers hosting video conferencing sessions will want to consider whether whole group, small group, or individual sessions make the most sense given the purpose of that session.
