  • Flexibility  (don’t get stuck in a category & use a variety of materials)
  • Originality (unique and different from others)
  • Elaboration (lots of details)
  • Think of everything that needs to be in your colony.  Where do inhabitants sleep, eat, exercise, work, go for entertainment, grow food?  What machines are there to make the colony habitable for humans- Oxygen, water, radiation protection, etc…

2) Label everything in your colony

3) Type a 1 page introduction to your colony.  What are its best features?  Why would people need to live there?  What are the structures in your colony?
