Specifications

Every study examining the possibility of a human presence on Mars has recognized the need to provide a source of mobility for the astronauts and colonists. In this unit from the award-winning IMSA Fusion STEM program, students consider the requirements for a Martian cargo rover. After seeing examples of other rovers, students design, build and test a prototype of their own. The emphasis is on communications and cooperation as students experience the challenges of systems integration in this multi-team engineering project.

Includes materials for 30 students, writable student content and access to detailed digital teacher content with professional development videos (1-year license). Grades 6–8.
