Students Build Mars Rovers for Elementary Schools
MCALLLEN--A group of high school students from Lamar Academy spent the day testing mars rovers they built.
The 20 rovers will be given to elementary schools to use.
Every elementary school in McAllen will receive one. Students learned what goes into making these rovers.
"It's something I've never done before. I've never really been interested in robotics, so I thought I should give it a try," Lanie Nitsch, who is a 10th grader at Lamar Academy.
One of the elementary students on hand said she wants to study engineering when she grows up.
"I know that I can make a difference in the world by building stuff," Kyra Aguilar, who is in 4th grader.
The mission to mars program gives students exposure to careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
