Outline of Presentation
  • What is the Mars Rover Model Competition?
  • What motivated the program?
  • Rules
  • Evaluation Criteria
  • Schedule
  • Intro to Mars

Program Summary
  • Primary and middle school (Grades 3-8) students.
  • Design and build a model of a Mars Rover .
  • Select specific science mission on Mars.
  • The model will be a minimal cost mock-up,
    constructed of mostly found objects.
  • A low cost (10) solar powered car kit or (25)
    RC car may serve as the chassis.

Motivation
  • Provide very low cost alternative to true
    robotics programs
  • Develop flexible curriculum module that covers
    planetary science and aerospace engineering
  • Excite and motivate future engineers
