A new planet that could potentially be colonized for human life has been discovered. Students are preparing for a fact finding mission where they will be sending a drone to the planet to collect data. The data will help them determine whether or not human life can be sustained on the new planet. They will use the LEGO EV3 platform for simulating the mission. Through the engineering design process students learn how to code using the EV3-G programing language, which will help them program the EV3 to achieve the goals of the mission.
