Aimee Hall's class designs and builds Mars rover models
Hi, our names are Andy Dietrich, Christen Mailler, and Val Podolak. Our task was to design and build a rover which would be able to take samples of the surface of Mars and try to find any signs of bacterial life in our samples. We built this hover craft. It has sensors in case of high or rough terrain and drills to secure the hover craft to the surface in case of a sandstorm. The rover also includes 2 cameras (built in) and 2 capture claws for picking material up and moving things around.
