CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

The year is 2049 and your students are set to blast off and travel to one of humanity’s next frontiers. Will it be Mars, the Moon, or even destinations on Earth that will push your students’ creativity, collaboration and critical-thinking skills to the limit? What will a community look like in these new and challenging environments?

Students will begin at Logics Base meeting several helpful characters before heading to Science Village. Each scientist in the village will provide students with valuable science highlights and video demonstrations that can help them not only stretch their imaginations, but also build a scientifically possible and empowering vision of tomorrow. Once they visit Science Village and sponge up all of the available science knowledge, they can choose the SLS Rocket (Orange) to head to the Moon’s equator, Starship to head to Mars’ North Pole or the Logics Air #1 Falcon Heavy Rocket to head to a frontier destination on Earth. Destinations on Earth include the Arctic, Underwater or Floating opportunities, Coastal Flood Zone and even underground in a mountain.

Build, build, build, and record a walk-through video (using Flipgrid or any other screen capturing software) of your final build as students explain their vision of a 2049 community at their chosen future frontier. Make sure you share the walk-through video link when submitting the student project (e.g. Flipgrid link, YouTube, Vimeo, etc).
