Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models
SJB243 roadrunner Hi, we're Jo, Ben and Sam. The roadrunner will be rocketed off to Mars, where it will land at 0 degrees N, 320 degrees W. There it will measure the contours of various craters in preparation for building a domed settlement in a crater. It has a laser to measure the craters with. The laser will shoot out, hit the other side, and reflect back. A sensor will time how long it takes to return, and figure out the distance.
