All science starts with a question. Writing a good research question can be a challenge for students. In this activity, students pose questions related to the study of Mars and evaluate the quality of their questions. Students will explore remote sensing data collected by a camera orbiting Mars – the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) and develop a team science question. Students will practice critical thinking skills, use a collaborative approach to this first critical step of the scientific process. Exploring the images of the surface of Mars in Visible (VIS) images, students will come up with a topic of study, their team science question and hypotheses.
