Live Video Chat: Robots Digging Up Martian Geology – Oct 5, 2011

Curiosity Mars Rover

Participate in the live video chat about the Mars Science Laboratory and the Curiosity Rover! Oct 5, 2011.

NASA Explorer Schools invites students in grades 4-9 from across the U.S. and Departments of Defense and State schools to participate in a live video webchat with Paulo Younse, a robotics engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, Calif. Younse will answer student questions about a career as a robotics engineer and the soon-to-be launched Martian rover, Curiosity, that has 10 scientific instruments aboard. Curiosity is about twice as long and more than five times as heavy as any previous rover.

The hour-long video chat begins at noon EDT on Oct 5, 2011. You do not need to be a participant of the NASA Explorer Schools project to participate in the chat.
