The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Imagine being a settler of Jamestown in 1607 and trying to survive the harsh conditions of a new and unfamiliar world. Now, imagine being one of the first astronauts to visit Mars and building a settlement in the extreme Martian environment. How would these two experiences compare? If resources are limited, how would you make decisions about items you need and those you don't need? Come explore with me as we travel through time and space to inhabit new worlds! #JourneytoMars
