Mary Alice Reporting – The Dover Public Library is hosting Make it NASA: What Will it Take to Live on Mars? in January.

The series, presented in partnership with Dover Middle School’s Study Plus after school program, is funded by a STEM collaboration with the NASA Glenn Research Center Office of STEM Engagement. 

This series is open to students participating in Dover Middle School’s Study Plus program. One activity session per week this spring will be reserved for the Make it NASA: What Will it Take to Live on Mars? project.

The Dover Public Library has been working with Dover City Schools for over six years to bring fun and educational activities to this after school group. With funding from a 21st Century Afterschool Learning Grant, the library developed a Mobile STEAM Lab with equipment like 3D printing pens, Snap Circuits, and more.

Using this equipment, plus additional materials provided by the NASA Glenn Research Center, this spring’s making activity will challenge students to design something that would make living on Mars possible.
