New York (The Verge) — NASA asks students to help name the next Mars rover theverge.com/2019/8/28/2083….
Name the Rover, open to K-12 students in US public, private, and home schools, is an essay contest in which students will be asked to name the robotic space traveler and explain the reasons behind their chosen appellation.
If you, a student in your household, or in your class (if you’re a teacher) would like to give it a try, it’s very simple. Just go to the Name the Rover Challenge page (https://www.futureengineers.org/nametherover), and click on the “Student and Teacher Signup” button. Entries will be judged on the significance and originality of both the name and the essay chosen. — Barbara Krasnoff/@verge
