In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to reveal the size of a planet outside our solar system, find out how much helium is raining out from Jupiter's cloud tops, locate a seismic event on Mars and study an interstellar object detected in our so

In this challenge, students will program a rover to use a color sensor on several rock samples, allowing them to simulate how the Mars Curiosity rover uses it's ChemCam instrument to analyze light emitted from geological samples on Mars.

Students design, build and program a robotic “super crawler” to transport a payload from a starting position to a target launch pad, deliver the payload in an upright position and return the robot to the starting point.
