OGDEN — Stephanie Baltazar looked at the labeled, premeasured sheets of plastic she and her mission teammates had pieced together with duct tape.
The fifth-graders awaited the command decision that it was time to connect their plastic structures to box fans, to inflate their habitats for the Mission to Mars activity.
“I think this could work on Mars,” said Stephanie, 11, from Clearfield’s Holt Elementary School. “We built a habitat, and I think we’ll be able to fit our team into it. It would work as shelter.”
