LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection
JFK Middle School
Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models
Our mission was to explore craters to find one for a domed settlement. The rover must be able to get on and out of craters and take samples. The rovers must land near the crater field, so we can get information on a bunch of different craters. We used: cameras, lights, a laser, a heater, insulation, a parachute, a hot air balloon, an air sampler and analyzer, sonar and radar, and a satellite dish.
