LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection

JFK Middle School

Aimee Hall

Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models

Description of project

Our group consists of Laura, Jesse, Chris, and Maria (not shown). Our task was to find fossils on the surface of Mars. This model, the S.S. Minnow, is designed to move easily around the terrain, climb around or over rocks, and climb canyon walls. It uses a type of ground radar to find fossils. The heater keeps the rover operating. The rover stores energy in 3 batteries to use at night and during dust storms.
