This session will summarize past and ongoing research to understand how liquid water shaped the surface of Mars >3.5 billion years ago. During this time period, there is significant evidence for flowing liquid water that carved large river valleys and formed lakes, some of which might have been the size of small seas or oceans on Earth. Following this ~45 minute talk, I will demonstrate the use of Google Mars for exploring the surface features of Mars using multiple data sets freely available to the public. Finally, for the last ~1 hour of the 2.25 hour session, I will plan to have an open dialogue with interested participants on how this material and use of Google Mars might be best incorporated into classroom exercises at all levels.
