Connected closely with Mars engineering efforts, Mars Robotics is one of three content "threads" for formal education listed in the Mars Exploration Program Public Engagement Plane, and supports national programs in robotics such as FIRST (9-12) and FIRST/LEGO League (6-8). The purpose of this effort is to provide mentorship and role models in order to inspire students to acquire technical skills, as well as to assist in the implementation of regional and national competitions. This effort supports engineering and E/PO staff participation.
