The bumpy and unpredictable terrain of the Moon’s surface is not so different from some parts of the Earth. We all need vehicles or some sort of robotic help for commuting, cargo transport or exploration of our planet. The topic will be introduced with a “guess the picture” game (Moon or Earth). Students will then watch the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space videos and have a group discussion. They will test their knowledge with an online game on the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space. Finally, students will build a Moon rover with a robotic arm and test it on a simulation of the Moon’s surface. This learning scenario aims at stimulating students to think critically and to illustrate the importance of scientific research for space exploration, such as on the Moon.
