Mars Rover-Surface Operations (2 Labs)

Help scientists by coding the Code Base to act as a rover and collect samples on Mars!Students will then build a project in VEXcode GO, together with their teacher, to drive and collect a sample with the Code Base.
Students will then add blocks to their projects to turn the Code Base around and drive it back to the base. As students test their projects, they will place a small object, like an eraser, on top of the Code Base, to represent the sample, when the robot pauses to collect it.

Illustration

Mars Rover-Landing Challenge (2 Labs)

Code the Code Base Rover to detect obstacles and clear the landing area for a Mars landing.Students will pretend that the Code Base is a rover that is tasked with detecting obstacles in the Mars landing area (a GO Field) so these obstacles can be removed.
Students will be introduced to the Eye Sensor on the front of the Code Base, and observe how the Eye Sensor can be used to detect objects.
Students will then build and test a project, using the [Wait until] block, to drive the Code Base until the Eye Sensor detects an object, then stop, and glow a colour, so they can remove the obstacle from the landing area.

Illustration

Mars Rover-Exploring Mars Geology (4 Labs)

Use the Electromagnet and Eye Sensor on the Code Base to collect, analyse and sort Martian rock samples like the Mars rovers.Students will be introduced to the role of a Planetary Geologist, and how they use the tools on the Mars Rover to help them collect and study samples. They will build the Code Base - Eye + Electromagnet to act as their rover in the Unit.
Students will build a project in VEXcode GO to use the Electromagnet to collect a Disk and return it to the base. They will first build the project with their teacher, and then will iterate on it in their groups to collect a Disk from other locations.
Students will share their projects and discuss how the Electromagnet functioned in their projects to carry the Disk to the base location. They will also share how they solved the challenge of driving the Code Base to new base locations.
