Make Mars Rovers Grades 5 & 6

Thu, July 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

Rovers are a carlike spacecraft that NASA uses to explore the surfaces of other worlds! So far, rovers have gone to Mars and the Moon – and one day, they might go even farther.

In this workshop, you will build your own rubber-band-powered rover that can scramble across the room. Build your rover out of cardboard, figure out how to use rubber bands to spin the wheels and use the engineering design process to improve your rover based on testing results.

This Zoomed program uses supplies from your home and is for children in grades 5&6 with minimal adult assistance and will be repeated for grades 3&4 on July 16
