Willoughby Middle School Students Explore the Geology of Mars

Willoughby"I am amazed at the quality of the Mars Explorer simulation," said teacher Tony Marinelli. "This activity allowed my students to use their knowledge of basic geology concepts on Earth and apply them to the other planets in the Solar System, especially Mars. The students are amazed that Mars has similar features as Earth, such as mountains, volcanoes, valleys, polar ice caps, and dust storms."
