Mars is the place to be for robots! In our spring LEGO Robotics class, we're going to celebrate all the exciting robotic missions exploring Mars this year by trying our hand at making our own robotic explorers. Orbiters, landers, and rovers – all are welcome here! Let's learn how to use a robot's motors and sensors to gather science on the only planet currently known to be completely inhabited by robots.
