The S.M.A.R.T.S. team is going to Mars! After winning a contest, S.M.A.R.T.S. gets the chance to participate in a Mars colony simulation out in the desert. Other science clubs are there, too including a rival club that’s played dirty in the past. Now, only a day into the mission, the S.M.A.R.T.S. equipment is malfunctioning. Could it be sabotage? Faced with multiple suspects and the challenges of (simulated) space, Zoe, Jaden, and Caleb will have to use their best science skills and investigative powers to figure out this red planet puzzler.
