Scientists Need Your Help!

Mars scientists are asking students from around the world to help them understand the red planet. Send in a rock from your region of the world, and they will use a special tool like the one on the rover to tell you what it's made of.
Then everyone can compare their rocks to the ones found on Mars.
They'll post a picture of your rock on the web, and give you a report on what kind of rock it is. They'll also send you an official certificate and Mars sticker for your contribution.

Your rock will be kept in a special collection where scientists from around the world can come to study them.
Here's how you can participate:

Minimum to send:
• Rock - minimum 2" / maximum 6" (preferred 4" size)
• Name
• Age
• Address (to send certificate and sticker - not released)
• Name of city/village and country (include zipcode if US)
• Clean rock - wash with water if dirty (make free of dirt)


NOTE: Only First Names, Age, and Cities will be listed on the web
Optional:

collected
• Copy of map with location where rock was collected
