Title: Milo, the Science Rover: A LEGO WeDo 2.0 Activity

In this activity, students will discover ways that scientists and engineers can use rovers to explore places where humans cannot go. Students will construct a science rover using the LEGO WeDo 2.0 kit and program the rover using WeDo 2.0 Software or a compatible programming app. Students will also document completion of the programming task and evidence of learning how the rover can help scientists make discoveries. 

This activity was demonstrated during the Exploring Today's Classroom (ETC) Summit.
