STEP 1 : PREPARE

The experience begins with a compelling video introduction. The video is a recruitment commercial from an Agriculture for Life’s space agency enlisting help to advise on farm safety protocol on Mars!

We are recruiting youth to apply their Earth-based
knowledge to the mission of safely farming on Mars.

Ag for Life’s Rural and Farm Safety escape mail game utilizes the logic of an escape room - providing an interactive, playful way to learn about safety, while challenging players to understand, identify and mitigate risks in order to keep themselves and their crew safe!
 

Digital components and physical manipulatives are utilized to encourage problem solving through the story telling narrative. This experience is engaging, valuable, and it’s adaptable to all grade levels.

IT'S OUT OF THIS WORLD!

STEP 2 : ENGAGE

Recruits will be divided into pairs and given an envelope - the content of which forms the bulk of their interactions. The envelope contains information on agricultural safety as well as manipulatives and things to do.

STEP 3 : AFFIRM

As puzzles are solved, the answers are recorded on the web portal. The facilitator guides the experience, with each correct answer progressing recruits through the learning modules.

Every good game has a rewarding conclusion, and in this case, the new recruits succeed and are given a ticket to Mars! They will join the first farming crew on the red planet and implement agricultural safety protocol.

STEP 4 : REWARD

NASA has recently begun promoting their own Mission to Mars - The Perseverance Rover, launched in July 2020, expected arrival and landing attempt on Mars is Feb 18, 2021.

Capture youth attention and anchor learning through the imaginative connection to real events in pursuit of human habitation of Mars.
