The Mars Rover Design Team will be unveiling their 2018 rover “Atlas” on Friday, March 9, 2018, at 12:00 noon in the Havener Center Atrium.
The event will include a presentation titled “Beyond Mars”, a short introduction from a guest speaker and members of the Executive Board, and of course, the unveiling of “Atlas” along with demonstrations of its capabilities. There will also be light refreshments and snacks, and the opportunity to talk with members of the team about new and future technologies on the rover.
This will be the sixth consecutive unveiling of an MRDT rover, and we would love the support of our fellow friends and students in the inaugural demonstration of this year-long project. Let us know on our Facebook event page if you plan on attending: http://tiny.cc/RoverReveal. For those unable to attend, we will be posting a full video of the event on our YouTube Channel by the end of the day.
As the years go by, our team is becoming more and more ambitious with each design. With this, there is an increase in need of funding. If you’d like to be a part of our mission to build the future, your donation would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested, please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Téa Thomas, by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
