Mars Surface project inspires students
29 September 2017
Hamilton Secondary College - Mars Surface project
DPTI Facilities Services has delivered an exciting and challenging space project on behalf of Department for Education and Child Development and the Hamilton Secondary College Space School.
Students re-creation of Mars surface
The project involved creating a command control centre and Mars surface landscape simulation which entailed a multifaceted lighting and audio visual instillation that would rival Hollywood’s best efforts
Students were involved in operating the various programs from walking on the surface of Mars to operating and monitoring activities from the control centre.
Replicating the Mars landscape required the sourcing of geological material from the Adelaide Hills, Mount Gambier and Regional Victoria.
Minster Close and Andy Thomas AO were among the dignitaries and invited guests to speak at the launch of the project which also coincided with the Adelaide hosting of the 68th International Astronautical Congress at the Convention Centre.

The Hamilton Secondary College Space School has close links with NASA and the European Space Agency, and have been fortunate to have had 12 astronauts and the Head of NASA speak at the school.
The recent Mars surface project is hoped to assist and inspire students who are interested in a career in science, especially space science, engineering, physics or astronomy.
Students who are interested in a career in science, especially space science, engineering, physics or astronomy are selected from schools all over metropolitan and country SA to join the Hamilton Secondary College Space School.
