Ingenious Engineering

NASA has put four rovers on the surface of Mars, each requiring a combination of curiosity, creativity and engineering skills. In this session, become an engineer and create a simple rover capable of surviving your own drop test. As you build, learn about some of the past and future machines that have landed on Mars.

Note: To participate in the hands-on activities, we recommend collecting some simple materials in advance. See suggested materials list below.
