Tasks Breakdown:
Mr. Adriano SILVA
-How volcanoes form on Earth e.g. plate tectonics
-How to calculate slope angles, diameters and height from satellite photos
-Identify features from satellite pictures which might suggest volcanic processes in the past e.g. lava flows
-Olympus Mons - theory of meteor impact

-How volcanoes form
-Chemical relationships, and the viscosity of silicon
-How to read satellite pictures of lava flows and caldera
-Formation of caldera
-Meteor impacts on Mars

Mr. Toshiyuki ITAI
-Plate tectonics on Earth
-Volcanic eruptions on Earth and Mars
-Meteor impact on Mars
-Volcanic slopes on Earth (Hawaii) and Mars (Olympus)
-Comparison between Mount Fuji and Hawaii

-Impact size of craters
-Shock waves through Mars
-Age of Olympus
-Comparing volcanoes on Earth and Mars

-How Olympus Mons was formed
-The theory of how Mariner’s Valley was formed
-The theory of how plate tectonics formed on Mars in the past

Ms. Rania KASHI
-Meteor theory for volcano formation on Mars
-Investigative methods used in science
-Mathematical evidence to prove/disprove theory
-Working effectively as a group
-New communication skills, across language barriers
