TEMPO^3: The First Month - The Mars Society - This is an update on the progress of the winner of the Mars Project Challenge. There are also requests for help in particular areas like fundraising, amateur radio, and animation. Since I cover space prizes and contests, of course I'm going to mention this part:
In the near future there will be age-specific lesson plans for TEMPO^3, as well as a multiple-school, multiple-age contest and a send-your-name-into-space project.
You can follow the progress on the TEMPO^3 blog. There are also a lot more resources on the project on the Mars Society site.
