Edible Rovers (High School)

Design and build a rover ... then eat it? This activity has groups of two design and build Mars rovers. The teams determine what instruments they want to include with their rover and plan a budget. They calculate the cost of the body of their rover based upon its size and materials and adjust their design in order to stay within budget. After building their edible rovers, they present the models and explain the parts.
