LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection
JFK Middle School
Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models
This is a picture of Roger, Greg, and Darrell's rover. We named it 13013. Its task was to land in a canyon or river bed and search for fossils of ancient microscopic life. Our rover is equipped with a microscope to find the fossils, a camera to take pictures, a solar heater, insulation, a radio receiver and sender. It also has rockets which can be shot into the ground to analyze rocks under the surface of Mars.
