Scarab, a rover designed to explore the lunar poles, was at Pittcon, the world’s largest conference and exposition for laboratory science, this week in Orlando, Florida. Scarab spent the mornings with almost 2000 kids learning about the moon and robotics. The elementary through high school students operated the rover, questioned the engineering team, and viewed the science payload for finding water on the moon. In the afternoons Scarab was demonstrated in the exhibit hall where hundreds of scientists and engineers from around the world observed and interacted with the rover and its engineers.
The students were inspired with engineering and science and the scientists marveled at the technology demonstrated by Scarab. This was a very successful demonstration and teaching opportunity.
