Seventh graders have been studying the Rovers that NASA sent to Mars in 2003 and 2011. Student’s then completed an engineering project last week at the end of their unit. They designed and created their own “rovers” and “landers” testing them outside:

“This year we added an additional component,” says Mrs. Hobbs, Upper School science teacher. “We headed over to the MakerSpace and added the design of a solar-powered rover to go along with building our landers.”
