Grades 3-8
Have you ever wondered how rover tires are made? How they test tires in different types of soil? Join Colin Creager, mechanical engineer, in the SLOPE Lab (Simulated Lunar Operations Lab) at NASA Glenn Research Center. We will take a virtual tour of the SLOPE Lab and learn how Colin Creager’s team is designing the SMA Spring Tires for a potential 2026 rover mission to Mars. Denise Duke will then have a “rolling” activity for you to do with your students using EV3, Vex, or other robots.
