STEM Mars Colony Lego Creative Builders

Manoeuvring our Mars Rover.

Today, in Year 5, we focused on mechanisms and their effect on force and movement. Initially, we worked in pairs and followed instructions to construct various mechanisms using gears, pulleys and levers. We then designed and constructed small habitable modules which were then joined together to form a larger colony base. We though about how we could move cargo from supply ships to the colony base via a remote controlled Mars Rover.
