Chemistry of Water: Mars Exploration -- Is There Water on Mars? Web Seminar

As part of a series of electronic professional development experiences for educators, the NASA Explorer Schools project and the National Science Teachers Association are hosting a 90-minute Web seminar on March 12, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. EDT. "Chemistry of Water: Mars Exploration -- Is There Water on Mars?" is an inquiry-based lesson on how atmospheric pressure and vapor pressure affect the boiling point of water. See why the boiling point of water is pressure-dependent, rather than temperature-dependent. Then, by extension, you will deduce if there could be liquid water on Mars.

This is the last time this seminar will be offered during the current school year.
