About the Book
Elizabeth is a precocious middle-school-age student who loves science.
In Elizabeth Goes to Mars! she is watching a TV interview about going to Mars and falls asleep. She starts dreaming of an actual trip to Mars. Her adventure with her dog, Rigel, reflects just a few of the challenges we will face if we want to live on Mars. This book is intended to support a grade school science curriculum that includes a unit on space. Readers will learn how different Mars and Earth are. They will also be introduced to some of the many technologies needed to travel to Mars, grow plants, prepare foods, obtain water, and more.
