Lockheed Martin has launched a high-tech education initiative, Generation Beyond, which brings the science of space into classrooms across America through the Lockheed Martin Mars Experience Bus and the Hello Mars app:

The new STEM education program will offer several interactive tools:

  • Online Curriculum: The core element is an online curriculum for middle school teachers and students, including lesson plans for teachers, a virtual field trip and activities students can bring home to share with their families. 
  • Lockheed Martin Mars Experience Bus: In addition to the curriculum, Generation Beyond includes a real-life Mars Experience Bus that will travel the country providing student riders with an interactive experience simulating a drive along the red planet’s surface. The Lockheed Martin Mars Experience Bus, an immersive virtual reality vehicle, replicates 200 square miles of the Martian surface. 
  • Hello Mars App: Allows students to find Mars in the sky, travel there virtually and receive real-time Mars weather reports.

The online tools and fun can be found at www.lockheedmartin.com/generationbeyond
