Students will explore Nasa Mars landings and create a simulated Martian surface, using programmable robots to navigate the terrain!

NASA is preparing for the first humans to land on Mars. Currently, the time it takes to land is known as “Seven Minutes of Terror.” We need to ensure a safe landing every time if we’re going to send people. Once they land, humans will need a lot of help on Mars to construct buildings, collect resources, and conduct scientific experiments…introducing self-driving robots to help get the job done! Students will explore NASA Mars landings to simulate (or create!) a safe landing by decreasing fall time. Students will also create a simulated Martian surface and use a programmable robot(s) to navigate the terrain.
