Bringing Curiosity to the Classroom

NASA-JPL’s Mars ROVER Curiosity (MSL) has discovered a rock specimen of interest on Mars. Pine Grove Laboratories has been commissioned by NASA to design, construct and deploy 8 ROVERS that will land on the Martian surface, navigate to the area of interest and collect a variety of data on the rock specimen. Once deployed, the only interaction between the ROVER and Mission Control will be data sent back via live feeds from on-board cameras and instruments. Landing is scheduled for January 31, 2014.
