Product Description
STEM Mission: Design and Create a Rover to Explore and Study the Planet Mars

Mission Objective: Your students will follow the mission directives to design and engineer a manned rover with scientific instruments that can withstand Mar’s environment and protect the explorer during the study of the planet. Students will choose from the clipart parts and instruments, draw new parts, and have the option of cutting out more parts from old magazines to complete their custom rover. Then they will answer questions to describe how their rover allows safe exploration through the Mars environment. They will have clear directions and rubric to guide them independently on their way to invention.

You provide the students with the EDITABLE handout and the provided 40 high quality clipart images, and they will create an awesome custom rover, complete with scientific instruments used to study and collect data on the planet Mars.

Students will design and build the rover, design and build scientific instruments on the rover, and answer 5 mission follow-up questions. Students are provided background information, clear directions and requirements, and even a detailed rubric.

No Prior Knowledge Necessary! Use as a fun STEM activity, astronomy lesson enrichment, or a sub plan!

LOW PREP – PRINT AND GO! Additional supplies needed, which you probably already have in your classroom are: scissors, glue, plain paper (to glue the rover on), and colored pencils. Old magazines are optional. 40 graphics are provided!
