Light Up Martian Landers
March 20, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Reach for the stars and explore! In this program girls will learn how robotics can be used to go where humans cannot. Gather information on real-life space robotics by hearing from members of our Astronomy Club who will share news from NASA on the Mars Perseverance Rover, a spacecraft recently sent to collect data from Mars. Girls will be presented with a made-up problem encountered during a discovery on the Red Planet. They will then design and test the best rover to solve the problem and complete the mission. Participants will explore solutions using the design thinking process used by real-life engineers. Girls will also explore circuitry that will help solve the problem for the rover using LED lights, resistors, and a power source. This event is for registered Girl Scouts only.
