Using the grid paper provided and a pencil – draw a detailed sketch of what you think the 2020 rover will look like. Remember to include labels in your sketch!

Think about how it travels over the rough terrain, sends and receives messages, collects samples and how it is powered. Don’t forget to use a ruler!

When you have completed your sketch in pencil you can go over it in fineliner and make it look like a blueprint.

CHALLENGE: Once you have completed your design for your Mars Rover you can then design a different rover for a different planet of your choosing.
