Description of project

Hi, we're Matt, Lauren, and Sam. Our task was to take samples of permafrost and ice caps. To accomplish this we had to build a rover to travel the surface and drill down. The Incam T-47 Snowspeeder started off with a remote-controlled car. We added a drill, solar panels, batteries, a heater, headlights, an arm to collect samples and a computer analyzer to analyze samples. Our landing site is 80 degrees N, 0 degrees W. This is the North Polar ice cap. Our alternate site is 80 degrees S, 0 degrees W, at the South Polar ice cap.
