Unit Overview

In this unit, kids will engineer rockets and rovers to help India and Jacob—a fictional, world-traveling brother and sister duo—explore planets and moons in the solar system. The duo sends messages from the International Space Station and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory where they are learning how to engineer rovers that can explore faraway worlds. As India and Jacob guide kids through the engineering activities, kids consider the trade-offs and variables involved in engineering their own model rockets and rovers.
