Using LEGO NXT Robots with Vernier Sensors to Simulate a Mission on Mars

The Space Foundation (Colorado Springs, CO) uses Vernier’s NXT Sensor Adapter and sensors with LEGO NXT robots in their “Mars Yard.” The combined technologies permit middle school students to simulate robotic rover missions on the “Red Planet.” As you can see from the photo, the Mars Yard looks pretty realistic!
