Let’s Climb a Martian Mountain

Space explorers in a far future might need to be good and stable climbers to explore mountainous landscapes on planets in our Solar System, like the impressive volcanoes on the Martian surface.

In this activity your team will perform a climb training activity on wall bars or a rock wall to improve your sense of balance and coordination and strengthen your muscles.
