Lesson Plans / Activities

A robotic explorer such as a rover may have four wheels, but it is different from a family car. In this activity, students compare the two vehicles, and then design and build a rover model that may be used to explore the moon. Special considerations for the vehicle include the type of terrain the rover will traverse.
