We're going to Mars!

That's right... all of Room 4 are going to Mars in 2011... well, our names are anyway!

Today we visited a NASA website, it said that they were sending a new rover to Mars next year.
It is taking with it a special microchip with our names on it!

We went onto this website and filled out the form all by ourselves. Then it gave us a special number and made us a certificate of participation saying we were part of history!

We printed our certificates to take home. If you would like your name to go to Mars you can visit the same NASA website we went to here:

Here is a copy of what our certificates look like (this is Rachel's one)

I am so pleased I followed the link to your blog. I will add a link to our class blog at Kaipara Flats School so we can keep up with you in Term 3. It is great to have another Year 2 class to follow. Have fun in Term 3. Ms Donnell
