SCIENCE CENTER `Mars' Program Is Offered

Motivation, confidence and a team spirit are objectives of a program offered to corporate teams at the Science Center.

It's called "Mission to Mars" and offers simulated existence for two hours inside a "base" on Mars. Each group member is assigned a specific crew position. Success of the mission depends on the crew members' ability to function as a team.

The traveling show is at the center through Sept. 11. The cost is $25 per person and includes a continental breakfast or snack. Groups of 15 to 32 members are accepted.

Members are introduced to meteorology and geology and conduct investigations with robot arms, lasers and other electronic tools.

To reach Mars this way, call at least two weeks in advance at 533-8179. Robert Sanford

***** GRANTS St. Louis Effort Wins Recognition

The St. Louis Economic Conversion Project has been awarded a three-year grant from the Peace Development Fund of Amherst, Mass., in recognition of its "outstanding community activism."

The St. Louis group will receive $20,000 for the first year, which will be used to help fund its operations, said the Project's Mary Ann McGivern. "It's a vote of confidence," McGivern said.

Founded in 1977, the economic conversion project has promoted the development of a regional industrial policy to lessen the dependence of the local economy and area companies on the military.

The Peace Development Fund is a non-profit foundation that provides training and money to peace and justice groups around the nation. Adam Goodman
