NASA Investigators working with Mars Odyssey data may have discovered remnants of snow packs that have created a system of gullies in crater walls and other, more unusual places such as ridge crests, sand dunes, and hilltops. Readers of this journal article can learn about the snow packs and their potential to collect and shelter water beneath themselves, possibly providing a favorable environment for simple life forms (like algae) to inhabit. Links to other related web pages are provided, and a Spanish translation is available.

NASA's Planetary Data System (PDS) archives and distributes data from NASA planetary missions, astronomical observations, and laboratory measurements. The PDS serves different groups, from scientists to schoolteachers. The general public may use the site to access photographs and information gathered on NASA's many missions. Scientists can download data sets in PDS Catalogs, as well as references, dictionaries, and relevant software. Teachers can select from a collection of resources that are designed to be brought into the classroom.

As part of this classroom activity, students will record and graph temperature data to learn about the search for water on Mars. Using models of frozen and ice-free "soils" constructed from readily available materials (a list is provided), they will examine (by periodically measuring temperature and graphing the results) how the ice content of the Martian soil affects the rate at which a warm probe will cool. This activity is part of NASA's Solar System Educators Program, a nationwide network of teachers who lead workshops that show other teachers how to successfully incorporate NASA materials and research into their classes. This activity is correlated to National Science Education Standards and NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.
