Summary
Huddled in tense silence, a team of scientists watches a bank of flickering screens. Years of design and engineering work, tests, failures, redesigns, and successes are bound up in this moment. Finally, a grainy picture appears on the screens. Cheers erupt as the men and women realize their robot has landed safely on Mars! "Get to Work with Science and Technology" is a fascinating new series that introduces readers to the real-life applications of STEM subjects. In "Exploring Distant Worlds as a Space Robot Engineer," readers of this book will meet the scientists who design and build robots, send them into space, and even drive the rovers that are exploring Mars today. It is told in a lively narrative style. This book includes firsthand accounts of life as a space scientist and robotics engineer, dramatic anecdotes, and behind-the-scenes photos. Readers will also get the chance to try out their robot designing skills with activities that are perfect for science fair projects
