Race to Mars is a huge Discovery Channel Canada project that tries to present the most scientifically accurate vision of a human mission to Mars possible. With input from over 175 Scientists, the 4-hour mini-series uses Hollywood effects to illustrate a scientifically grounded mission-plan. There’s also a 6-hour documentary series on the science, and a major education/outreach project online. The website includes free downloadable 3D games and web-games that blend riveting game play with science-inspired subject material. We’re using Serious Games to educate without being completely didactic, and we include curriculum-based science material to back up our content.

It is indeed a resource worth checking out. Related: Mars RoverNASA Engineering ChallengesImmense Amount of Ice Found on Mars
