Their effort was the only entry in a state-wide contest to build a scale replica of the Delta II that could house a model of Mars Global Surveyor built to 1/18th scale from Lego(TM) building blocks by Dr. Philip Christensen.
Two McDonnell Douglas Delta II rockets will launch Mars Global Surveyor in November 1996 and Mars Pathfinder in December 1996, from the Kennedy Space Center.
The Tombstone High School class received a tour of ASU, a Mars globe for their classroom, and a variety of NASA lithographs and posters. Their experience working together as a team is captured in their report, below.
