Lockheed Martin wants to take Fort Worth residents to Mars this weekend

🕐 1 min read

Lockheed Martin is inviting Fort Worth residents to take a trip to Mars.

Lockheed Martin’s Generation Beyond Mars Experience is coming to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History over the weekend with the goal of showing students and other what traveling on Mars might be like.

The Generation Beyond Mars Experience features the Mars Bus, an immersive virtual reality simulation in a school bus, along with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) exhibits. The experience is part of Lockheed Martin’s Generation Beyond program, which is designed to prepare students for NASA’s planned missions to Mars in the 2030s. The program includes a classroom-based curriculum that uses space exploration to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM.

The public can take in the Mars Experience on Jan. 14 – 15 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. as well as the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History while enjoying a day at the Stock Show. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 16. Ages 5 and under are free. Museum members (as well as members of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame) enjoy free Stock Show grounds admission.
