Description:

In this team design challenge (page 19-24 of PDF), learners "land" a model Lunar Rover in a model Landing Pod (both previously built in activities #3 and #4 in PDF). Learners drop the pods containing the rovers from a prescribed height and record their observations. Learners improve (re-design and re-build) their Landing Pods based on their observations from the first drop.
