Imagine Mars The Imagine Mars Project is a national arts, sciences, and technology education initiative that leads children or students to work together with scientists, engineers, artists, and civic leaders to design and share a futuristic Mars community for 100 people. Children or students explore their home community and decide what cultural, scientific and artistic elements are important to a community's success. They discover the extreme martian environment and imagine what life might be like on the red planet. Finally, they create a project that artistically reflects their knowledge of Mars, understanding of community, and hopes for the future. Students share their finished project by posting it in the online gallery.
