Continuing our study on Mars and learning about space rovers that have landed on Mars, we had a go building one. Last year I bought the kids the snap circuit rover kit and finally got it out of the closet and we spent the morning putting it together. Actually it only took abut 30 minutes to assemble it and I let the kids play with it for a bit this morning.
Following the directions to assemble
Adding the circuits to make it go. Team work required
Our completed Rover which the children christened Destiny:) They had a go trying it out in the hallway but then we decided....
......to use a blanket to make ridges and hills like on the surface of Mars.
The children had a great time trying to maneuver the Rover around our makeshift landscape. If the batteries hadn't run out we would be outside trying to come up with some obstacles for the rover to maneuver around.
Next week we are on to Jupiter!
