Skip making an account by choosing "I just want to look around." Choose this to cruise the site by creating an Anonymous Tourist Visa to just look around. Become a map maker in the Map Room of the Citizen Science Hall, become a curious visitor in the Crater City Town Hall Polling Place, visit the Two Moons Theater, or view the visitor center Tourist Malls Atlas.

In the Classroom

View movies that feature testing of the Mars Rover models on similar terrain areas here on Earth. Share the videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Learn why we map Mars by visiting the Map room. After viewing the information video, help find terrain changes on Mars or count craters. There is great information on every page of this site. Find your way back using the sitemap. Allow students to explore this site and hold a class discussion of the interesting information and major points learned through the exploration. Research other NASA probes and missions to identify information learned and how we understand the universe and maybe our own planet better.
