Foundational programme, ‘Project Mars’ is a mission to colonise Mars and promote space tourism which is centred around six engaging and stimulating puzzles that students collaboratively solve to complete.
This project is inspired by the real-life SpaceX mission to colonise Mars. We hope to enlighten our students with the knowledge and passion to be a part of such big endeavours in the future.
Design your Rocket in 3D
In the first puzzle, we have to design the Rocket of your dreams that will get you to Mars using 3D designing!
Targeted Skills – Product Design, 3D Modelling, Physics of motion
Build your team
Now that your rocket is ready, it’s time for us to pick the right crew for the mission. Carefully assess the strengths and weaknesses of various professionals to make the best team that is ready for the challenging journey ahead!
Targeted Skills – Data driven decision-making, communication, human skills
Code your Rocket’s navigation system
Before we launch we need to make sure the navigation systems of our Spaceship are properly programmed. Use block-based programming languages to create your own autopilot systems that also includes shields and missiles to avoid incoming asteroids
Targeted Skills – Programming basics
Promote your mission
Space tourism is a new concept to the world, so now we have to get creative and make an informative promotional video to educate and attract the public to join us on our journey to Mars!
Targeted Skills – Creative Expression, Marketing, Video Editing

Targeted Skills – Game theory, Real-time decision making, Analytical thinking, Collaborative thinking
Make your Mars Rover
In this final and exciting puzzle, you will put your engineering hat on, to design, code, and build a remote-controlled rover to navigate the tough Martian terrain!
Targeted Skills – IOT, Programming, Hands-on-making
