Roving with Rosalind is an education and outreach project which presents Mars mission based classroom activities for primary and secondary schools as well as activity groups. This collection of resources is funded by the UK Space Agency, and give pupils the opportunity to complete activities such as deciding on a launch plan and designing a Mars Rover to identifying samples the rover has detected.

The recommended order for these activities would be to first complete a landing site selection, before designing and making your own rover and instruments, then complete an analogue mission and sample analysis before finally creating some computer code for your mission. All activities can be done with no physical equipment, however hands on equipment (programmable rovers and materials for pupils to build their own spectroscopes) may be loaned by contacting the project leaders at rovingwithrosalind@gmail.com, or by filling in this form: https://forms.gle/2fPHRbfDsTqbSsVj9

These resources link closely with the computing, science, mathematics and design and technology curriculum.
