Principia Space Diary: robots in space
Robots are really useful in space as they can do lots of different jobs, some of which are too difficult or dangerous for humans. This activity looks at the different uses of robots in space exploration, with children researching the different uses of robots including robotic arms, Moon buggies and space probes. They then design a robot that will help explore a new space habitat.
