Space agencies have discovered an asteroid is on a collision course with planet Earth. In order to preserve humanity, a settlement has been developed on Mars.

Faculty debaters must put forth their proposal to the Interplanetary Council (the audience), to occupy the last seat on the last shuttle to Mars. Professors will each argue that their discipline is the one indispensable area of study that the new settlement will need to survive.

Each prof will argue that their discipline is the one indispensable area of study that the new settlement will need to survive — but it will be up to you to decide which one makes the best case.

Presented by the Society of Scholars with support from alumni UBC and the UBCO Ice Cream Club.
