Mars Sustainable Colony for Humans and Animals
Through a cooperative effort, students created a sustainable colony on Mars by first brainstorming the items needed for a livable city. Then, students constructed their creations with materials and then built their creations in Minecraft. Students worked together to answer this question: how does our Mars colony show evidence of humans?
Students chose one of two approaches: explain and build a model of human achievement or explain an environmental problem and build a sustainable home.

Grades 7th through 10th had the option of choosing a topic that was covered during the year in their STEAM class and apply the theme Evidence of Humans to show how it was related either with positive or negative impacts.
The 7th and 8th-grade students chose Magnetic Fields and Properties for their topic and demonstrated its positive impacts on society today.
The 9th and 10th grade’s project was to demonstrate the impact of deforestation on the environment and to provide possible solutions.
Here at Renton Prep, we encourage the use of technology to enhance our student’s education. Visit our Wakelet to see more videos from this year’s fair and of our Hyflex classroom experience.
