Space Exploration is for Everyone: This interactive session enables children to build a broader view of the plethora of roles needed for space exploration (e.g. creative, human resource, and leadership roles), beyond the traditionally associated fields of astronaut, scientist, and engineer. We introduce the roles based on real Viking Mars Mission phases from concept to launch and analysis. We will use Viking roles to talk about interests, skills and abilities, as well as education. We will do some interactive "applying for jobs" based on students' interests and run group "interviews", where students answer questions that might be asked in a real interview. These will be carefully chosen to ensure students feel empowered.
