Turn your classroom into 'mission control', and gain access to the cameras and controls of a real robotic rover to complete tasks on a realistic model Martian landscape - all while learning about the incredible engineering that makes these missions possible!
Your students will need to use their team-working and problem solving skills to complete the mission, and will get the chance to ask questions about Mars exploration along with the various types of STEM roles that are required to make it possible.
The session is straight-forward to run with either Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Participants per session - minimum of 5, maximum of 30.
Each session lasts for 60 minutes.
£90 per session.
