Perseverance film: activity and discovery pack
Perseverance is a NASA rover that landed on Mars, in February 2021. The rover is searching for past evidence for life on Mars and collecting samples to be returned to Earth with a planned sample return mission, from NASA and the European Space Agency, ESA.
This resource activity pack supports the video made by the UK Space Agency about Perseverance and the involvement of the UK in this mission. The video was filmed in the Natural History Museum, where they had suspended a seven metre diameter model of Mars. The resource contains infographics on the mission and associated Mars missions, with links out to other teaching resources. There are also career profiles of many of the scientists and engineers featured in the video, and for the artist who created the Mars model.
Though designed for students at secondary school, it may be adapted for use with learners at upper primary level.
