Mars Rover

I find the landing of the Mars rover Curiosity fascinating. As I was watching this video, I couldn’t help but wonder if we are teaching our students, all students, to become the complex problem solvers of future generations. Somehow, I don’t think a focus on standardized tests is going to cut it. How are you, the educators in your school or district, preparing students for complex problems such as landing a rover on Mars? What will the complex problems be of the future?
