Code a Mars Sample Collection Video Game
NASA sends rovers to Mars to collect data and carry out scientific studies. The Perseverance Mars rover is designed to take that data collection one step further by gathering rock cores in sample tubes and leaving them on the surface for a future "fetch rover" to collect. The fetch rover would collect the samples and bring them to a Mars ascent vehicle – a rocket that would carry the samples from the surface to orbit around Mars – for eventual return to Earth.
In this project, you will use Scratch, a visual programming language, to create a video game that simulates the way NASA collects samples on Mars!
