During four months, six private school students (ages 13-16) had Astronomy classes with the Journey to Mars theme. Students had to experience how they could plant on Mars, to construct and after to launch their rocket, to perform Spatial Physics, Mechanics and Astronautics calculations. In this work it is presented the specific story "Journey to Mars" in details, with the soundtrack used, how much time had been spent with each scene, and other useful issues; and the reactions of students and teacher are also presented. The results, obtained by the constructivism perspective, indicates good engagement by the students, as well the achievement of effective learning.
