About the project
The “House on Mars Exhibit” explores the “Red Planet”
using interactive exhibits and computers to demonstate the atmospheric conditions on Mars. Children are able to “plan” their own trip by choosing what they want to take with them, no point in taking a kettle though, because water won’t boil on Mars. Another exhibit allows young visitors to “jump in a space” that mimics the atmospherics of the moon or they can see what they weigh on Mars Jupiter and Earth and see the differences. This exhibit gave a unique opportunity to both children and adults, to see what it would really be like to go to Mars, and to experience some of the problems encountered by a planet with a great deal less gravity than Earths.
