Extension Option A (default option): Once you have successfully programmed the Mars rover to collect your rock samples, expand your skills by navigating a route back to the analysis site.

Extension Option B (please indicate on booking form to request): Once you have successfully programmed the Mars rover to collect your rock samples, you will work scientifically to investigate which Martian material will be best for building homes on the planet.
