    Middle School - Grades 7-9
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Could Mars be terraformed using photosynthetic organisms like plants? [P]
    Since the component of mars is mostly Fe2O3 (rust) can we use an acid such as H3PO4 to extract oxygen out of the martian soil? [E]
    Should we terraform Mars? [E] [E]
    Does life exists on Mars? [E] [P]
    A few Mars terraforming project ideas [E]
    Deterine if specific microorganisms can meet two of the criteria (ability to survive in the Martian atmospheric mixture of gases, and the near vacuum atmospheric density) required to terraform Mars. [E]
    Which combination of materials are best for space suits for astronauts exploring Mars? [P]
    1. Determine whether plants can survive in a simulated Martian-like environment.
    2. Determine whether plants can change the atmosphere from carbon dioxide to oxygen. [E]

    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Using cyanobacteria on Mars to generate oxygen. (kinds of photosynthetic bacteria that are thought to have converted the early Earth atmosphere by producing oxygen.) [E] [E]
    Creating a facility for farming on the planet Mars [P] [P]
    How and why the Cynipid Gall Wasps jump and how their mechanism of motility can be applied to the design of a Mars rover [E]
