NASA's next rover, Perseverance, is launching to Mars this summer. Ask questions of mission team members and find out how to share the excitement with students during this virtual education workshop from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

In this one-hour live workshop, NASA experts will provide an in-depth look at the engineering behind the Perseverance Mars rover. Learn about the rover's cameras, wheels, brains and more from JPL Systems Engineer Matthew Smith, and find out how the parts of the rover work together to accomplish the mission’s science goals. Plus, get an inside look at how JPL engineers designed, built and tested Perseverance, NASA's most technologically advanced rover yet. With a focus on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) engineering practices, learn how lessons and activities from JPL’s Education Office can get your students doing their own engineering projects, whether they are learning in a traditional classroom, summer camp or online.
