2017 Cabo Verde Tenth Island Project

This is how Bob Barboza (Califórnia) and Angelo Barbosa (Cabo Verde) are working together to create a STEAM colaboration project between USA and Cabo Verde since 2009

Bob Barboza at The International Mars Society Meetings

Robotics’ Society of Southern California board member Bob Barboza spent the week in Washington, D.C. presenting at the International National Mars Society Convention and was on a special panel with Jennifer Mandel, STEM program, Director, Lockheed Martin and Alyssa Carson, Teenage Astronaut-in-training. Nicole Willett, Moderator & Education Director, The Mars Society helped to organize the program and assisted in the programming for the international event.

Bob Barboza later met with the Canadian Mars rover team and the United Kingdom hot air balloon team. Special podcasts were created for Kids Talk Radio Science and will be published for the general public on October 1, 2016. Plans are underway for additional podcast on Kids Talk Radio Canada and Kids Talk Radio United Kingdom.


Applying Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards to Project-Based Learning:
The Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Super School Design Center brings together scientists, futurists and curriculum writers to create project-based learning experiences in the
areas of science, technology, engineering, languages, arts, and mathematics.

One of its arms, the Barboza Space Center, is a teaching and learning platform for future astronauts, engineers, and scientists interested in exploring Mars. Buttressed by the Next Generation Science
Standards, teachers guide students in building and repairing prototype satellites, habitats, hyperloops, nanocrafts, and robots that can be used to simulate missions to Mars. Learning takes place on two fronts. First, teachers work in teams to write curriculum. Second, students engage in these Occupy Mars Learning Adventures and document their findings through the cyber radio station, Kids Talk Radio. The first is indispensable to the second: teachers must be inspired and entrusted to create the
curriculum that will scaffold their students’ learning.

What does this kind of learning look like?
Students might work on teams, for instance, to solve problems such as how to shield habitats from
radiation. This work necessarily draws upon ideas and practices from a variety of disciplines—electrical and mechanical engineering, geology, physics, chemistry, biology and astronomy. Teachers can tap into the NGSS to set up the curricular pathways their students need to explore several different disciplines simultaneously. Gone is the practice of wading through successive introductory courses, each disconnected from the next.

Instead, students learn what they need to solve real-world problems. At the Barboza Space Center, we encourage students to link with experts both on-site and across the globe. At the NASA-sponsored Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey, California, for instance, students can make use of a robotics lab or flight simulator to conduct research. They might solicit information or communicate the results of their efforts to other scientists via distance-learning or Kids Talk Radio. They use technology to transcend space, time, and institutional boundaries, just as do their adult counterparts engaged in solving real-world problems. There is no more exciting and engaging way to bring the sciences to life.

Our work to date has attracted the interest and endorsement of people and institutions around the world—from the University of Southern California, to Central Falls High School, in Rhode Island, to the Education Ministry of the Republic of Cabo Verde, where a live volcano provides a living laboratory for the study of interplanetary volcanism. The common threads linking these parties are two passions—first, for making science come alive to each and every student, regardless of language, background knowledge, ability, and past history; and second, to nurture among their teachers the
autonomy, tools, and inspiration to make that happen.
