ROADS on Mars — News for teams (Feb. 12, 2020)
Our next “Meet a NASA Expert” video conference is coming up this week. Details are below — but first, some information on the mini-challenges.
ROADS on Mars mini-challenge submissions
We hope you’ve been working on your ROADS mini-challenges. We’ve loved the videos we’ve seen on social media so far! Don’t forget to submit them to NESSP so that your hub can score them.
Submissions page — https://nwessp.org/mars/teams/submissions/. If you visit the NESSP website on a computer, you’ll see a white button that says “Mini-challenge submissions!” on the right-hand side. Or you can select “Mini-challenge submission” from the dropdown menu on the top navigation bar.
Have you had problems uploading your video? Don’t forget that the videos (and mission patch photos) are optional! The important thing is to submit at least one link to a social media post.
