Imagine being an astronaut stranded, alone, on Mars. This is the plot of Andy Weir's book about an astronaut's struggle to survive on the fourth rock from the Sun.

While we won't read the entire book, I promise to get you started! We will primarily read and ask questions like, "Why do people help?", "How can science be useful outside the classroom?", "What is our responsibility to the future?"

WARNING: I am not a scientist! While I love learning about the laws that govern our world, I don't know much about them. That's where you come in! If you can share your knowledge of physics, chemistry, biology, or philosophy - I'll need your help!
