NASA’s MAVEN mission will launch later this year. Earlier this year NASA hosted a student art contest through which students could have their work sent to Mars. Last week NASA opened a MAVEN Haiku contest. The contest will select three Haikus to send on the MAVEN mission.
Applications for Education
To enter the contest you have to be 18 or have a parent or teacher make the submission on your behalf. This could be a fun poetry-writing activity to combine with a lesson on space exploration.
