Travel to MARS

MARS is a minimal cost, two-day enrichment program for academically qualified students with an interest in science.  On June 15-16, we launch our inaugural MARS mission focusing on health sciences.  Our target audience is rising sophomores, juniors and seniors with a demonstrated interest in and aptitude for science.

Schedule of Events

Each day’s schedule consists of two interactive morning presentations, lunch provided by the university, two afternoon presentations and a “spacewalk,” or extra-vehicular activity (EVA).  The two EVAs include a tour of the academic facilities on the first day and a tour of residential housing the following afternoon.

Register Today

We encourage the best students to apply. Requirements for mission training include a grade point average of 3.0 (4.0 scale).  Registration for this initial mission will be limited to 44 participants. The cost to attend is $100.
