Get students engaged in the history-making event and explore more upcoming events! 

Today, NASA made history with the first helicopter flight on Mars! (Watch the Ingenuity Mars helicopter's flight unfold in the video above, which was recorded by the Perseverance rover.) Students can "dare mighty things" right along with the engineers who made the flight a success. First, watch the student talk below to hear from NASA experts about what went into designing a helicopter for Mars, then explore related activities to get students engaged in their own engineering challenges and our ongoing exploration of Mars.

Plus, don't miss our upcoming events for educators and students. This month, hear more from the Mars helicopter team and discover how you can celebrate Earth Day with educational resources from NASA. In May, meet experts exploring planets beyond our solar system, and in June, learn how we study and track asteroids.
