The Mars Rover going up in 2011 will carry people’s names to Mars on a microchip, and you can get your name on it by going to:

    This is fun for students, we have done the send your names to Mars in the past and the kids get a big kick out of it and are more invested in learning about the planets and space exploration. It gives them a sense of ownership.
