Earlier this yr SciShow Youngsters printed a sequence of 4 movies all about Mars. To wrap-up that sequence SciShow Youngsters just lately printed a compilation of all of these movies in a single video titled Journey to Mars. I’ve embedded that video beneath.
The compilation video above would not embody an earlier SciShow Youngsters video about Mars. That video is titled What Would We Eat on Mars? The video explains why vegetation do not develop on Mars and what it will take to attempt to develop vegetation and help life on Mars. The video ends with a sequence of questions for teenagers to reply with their ideas about how we would develop vegetation on Mars and what to develop and eat on Mars. I believe it is a enjoyable video and a enjoyable set of questions to make use of to get children fascinated by science.
