Take a Field Trip to Mars

Go to Mars with Your Science Class

Labster is making our Mars simulation available to teachers and their students in celebration of the Perseverance Mars Rover landing – NASA couldn’t land its Mars Rover without simulating it first. Now you can use a Mars simulation in your own classroom! This special trial ends on March 31, 2021.

 

Guide two astronauts on a mission to Mars

Play Labster’s Vectors and Scalars simulation and learn how to differentiate between a vector and scalar quantity and identify the magnitude and direction of a vector. Define the vector components and solve basic engineering problems with the Cartesian coordinate system, while helping out two astronauts on their extraplanetary mission on the surface of Mars.

After this simulation you’ll be able to:

  • Describe the difference between vector and scalar quantities
  • Identify the magnitude and direction of a vector
  • Determine the product of two vectors
  • Define the components of a vector

Play the simulation from a laptop/desktop on Chrome or Firefox
