Students

Your spacecraft has been hit by a meteor shower and crash-landed in the Mariner Valleys of the planet Mars! The Mariner Valleys are 4.3 miles deep and 2,500 miles long, over three and a half times deep and nine times as long as Earth’s Grand Canyon! From your scattered spacecraft you must build your own Mars Rover and with it guide your surviving crew members to Arsia Mons, a dormant caldera over twice as high as Earth’s Mount Everest and thirty times as large as the volcano Mauna Loa on Hawaii! With your salvaged Mars Rover you must traverse glacial rifts and secure the safety of the Seven Sisters, gargantuan caves formed from extinct lava tubes. But your time is limited because your sensors have detected a massive meteor storm heading your way!

Parents

Robotics is the Future. We cover the basics but this course is unique will be challenging even if your child has taken an NXT Robotics course before. Limited Time creates a sense of suspense, imminent failure, and excitement. Class emphasis is on the practical use of the Scientific Method, using Observation, Query, Hypothesis, Prediction, Testing, Refinement or Rejection, and Theory to build, program, and refine a Lego NXT Robot to overcome challenges, resulting in a sense of accomplishment.
