About this Grantee

Ms. DeChristofano and her partners implement “Mars Base 2020: Weather and Worms” to help students understands of the Earth, its relationship to the sun and other planets, and the effect of gravity. Using a biosphere that simulates life in a semi-permanent science colony on Mars, students and teachers also work together to cultivate a food supply that can sustain scientists and astronauts.
