Rover and instrument design
This activity will introduce students to instruments and rovers that are designed by scientists and engineers for use in planet exploration. Students are given a range of considerations before they learn more about existing instruments and rovers used in missions to Mars. Students then have the opportunity to design and build their own spectroscope and create a rover that is capable of carrying a number of different science instruments. This resource provided as part of the ‘Roving with Rosalind’ pack, links to topics in engineering, science and design and technology.
It may be possible to receive a build your own spectometer kit for your school. Please use the contact details in the introductory presentation https://www.stem.org.uk/rxgu8g .
