LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection

Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models

Description of project Rennie and Alison are pictured with the rover.

Our mission tasks are to take pictures and reading of volcanoes such as Olympus Mons on Mars. We decided that we would need both an orbiting satellite and a mobile rover to accomplish our mission. The rover has two nuclear reactors. It uses its claw to take rock samples from a site. The samples are placed in the analysis pods to find the elements in the rock. The satellite will be able to guide the rover to the most promising volcanoes within range and take pictures of volcanoes that are too far for the rover to reach.
