The Mars Learning Adventures

Our USA student "Tiger Teams" are learning about colonizing Mars.   We are partnering with high school students in the Republic of Cabo Verde.  Together, we will study volcanoes on both Mars and Earth.

Can you help us by pointing us in the direction of more information about volcanoes on Mars?

We welcome your comments.
