Analogue mission

This activity allows pupils to simulate the robotic exploration of Mars. Pupils will have the opportunity to take on the role of the rover controlled by mission control as well as being able to build their own remote control rover. Pupils will use a map of Mars to set out regions of interest and hazards before navigating their way around them. This activity links well with the key stage 2 curriculum for science and design and technology.
