This is an interactive workshop using Maths, Computing and problem solving skills to program the LEGO NXT rovers to complete challenges on Martian terrain mats. Using coordinates, angles and measurements your students must program their rovers to destroy the alien, remove boulders from the transportation area, return the NASA rover to its charging point and then make it to the digging site. 

However, there is a dust storm approaching so the rovers must be quick to complete their mission.
