An out of this world introduction to planetary exploration. A whistle stop tour of the Solar System, looking at the scale of the distance between the planets and the different conditions on each planet's surface. Children then work in teams to build a simple DrumBot and test its performance. They then use their knowledge of the planets to decide which one it is best suited to explore.
