Mars Curiosity Virtual Field Trip

On December 12, we ate lunch in the classroom together and experienced our first live virtual field trip at NASA's headquarters in Washington D.C. through Discovery Education's live event called ", Journey to the Extreme." During the event, NASA scientists shared their latest discoveries of Mars and Mars Rover Curiosity, and we were able to enjoy our lunch while taking notes, taking pictures, and tweeting about our learning. 

To view the videos we experienced live, click HERE.

Check out some of the tweets we shared with our followers during the event, in ascending order (first ones we tweeted are last).
