Bing with Seattle’s Pacific Science Center (PSC) bring an online Mars experience called “Captain Mike’s Mars Adventure” contest to 1st- 8th graders for Washington State students. “The site takes you on a journey with “Captain Mike” as he prepares for his trip to Mars. As part of the trivia contest, kids’re asked questions about Mars to help Captain Mike learn about planet before his trip. For each correct answer, kids earn a star to add to their Interplanetary Explorer badge – because all kids should have one. After helping prepare Captain Mike for his trip, kids are able to draw what they think their first day on Mars would look like and submit their drawing for a chance to win a trip to attend opening of “Facing Mars” exhibit at PSC, money for their school to put towards science programs, and some pretty sweet computer gear.” Microsoft has also highlighted the work they are doing with NASA on their Mars exploration at this year’s PDC conference.
