Build your Mars exploration rover

In this resource from the European Space Agency, students design and program a LEGO- built rover. Basic instructions are first programmed with the LEGO brick. Then, to remotely control the LEGO-built rover, students program it with the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 software. The objective is to conduct a space experiment using a scientific approach and collect data. Measurements are analysed and modelled so that they can be compared with the student’s hypothesis.
