Learn about planets and build a rover to go to Mars then afterward use NASA 3D interactive app to film your rover in action. But, first build it with a paper plate, milk or bottle cap lids, straws, balloon and bamboo skewers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDS_4LgOs7A

You can use your own curriculum, get something off the internet or we will help you by making suggestions from top and trusted curriculum providers with free access- like MIT, Teach Engineering, 4H, NASA, Lego and more.
