An Introduction to the Children's Area.... for Adults
The Children's area is for self discovery. It has been designed as a fairly simple maze, that allows access to information pages at certain points. While the pages are informative, they have been written in a way that will try to encourage enquiry and a wish to know more. They use appealing graphics, puzzles, animations, quiz questions and the FAQ idea, to enable a young person to learn about Mars and many other topics, which at first sight may not seem related.
Visitors to the Site are introduced and helped around by a Mars robot called MARTI. They can drive MARTI on Mars and make it do things. When they do, a route to a new page or "room" is opened, allowing access to information and projects.
