Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models

Description of project

Hi! We're Catherine, Emily, and Tom. We made the Mars Energizer Bunny 2001 rover. It includes 8 jet thrusters, a hot air balloon and wing balancers, which make our rover move. Our mission was to design and build a model of a vehicle to map the Martian surface and search out sites suitable for spacecraft landing. The sites must be easily accessible and safe for landing, but shouldn't be too far from areas of interest to scientists.
