Marsquakes (249)
The NASA InSight mission successfully landed on Mars in November 2018.    The first data  from the UK built MEMS accelerometer has already been received and it seems to be working well.    By the end of January the SEIS instrument package will be carefully placed onto the Martian surface by a robotic arm and covered with a  wind and thermal shield.   Seismic activity on Mars can be caused by geological faulting, meteorite impacts, wind activity or tidal effects from the Martian moons. A range of educational resources to support this mission have been developed for schools, including simulated impacts and build your own seismic sensor  see www.bgs.ac.uk/marsquake
This session will consist of talk about the mission objectives by InSight scientist Dr. Anna Horleston from Bristol University together with some hands-on demonstrations of classroom activities that you can do to help understand the science behind this mission.
