Plants vs Mars

At COSPAR-K, the team at STEM Industry School Partnerships Program (SISPs) will challenge you to create smart habitats to improve liveability in space for future Mars based communities. You will learn to think like engineers in order to design Smart STEM focussed products for remote deployment and automation of devices on Mars. Areas of exploration will include product design, working with sensors and data, plus prototyping user interfaces for the remote management of resources.

Using real world science with a dash of sci-fi, we are exploring how plants and life will evolve on Mars. Plants vs Mars poses the questions: Will plants adapt? Will survival be dependent on engineered systems? Choose a side, Plants or Mars. Students will be required to explore the science, develop their argument and design a smart solution to support life on Mars.

This exciting creative interdisciplinary (cross-curriculum) design project will also be available for 2021 via the NSW SISP Program.

Post Congress Information

The Covid-19 pandemic forced deferral of the Sydney Assembly from August 2020 to January 2021 and redesign of the presentation mode from 100% in-person to either 100% virtual presentation or a mix of virtual and in-person presentations (COSPAR-2021-Hybrid).

During the events of the week, we all engaged with an extremely high quality COSPAR scientific program. There were 615 sessions, each delivered twice; over 2,000 scientific presentations; and three excellent workshops led by our anchor sponsor Lockheed Martin. Over 2,000 delegates were active on the platform each day. From the app, there have been over 2,000 downloads, more than 117 thousand page hits, and the number keeps rising. The assembly website has had over unique 11,000 users accessing content.
