In Computing, Year 5 have been looking at the Mars Rover.  We have learned that the Mars Rover sends data (information) back to Earth in binary code which is a series of 1s and 0s which represent numbers.  These numbers can then represent colours or numbers or letters. People on Earth can then send messages or instructions back to the Mars Rover using binary code. We know that there have been several Mars Rovers and each new Rover is an improvement on the one before.  We have designed our own Mars Rovers both in school and at home and we are really pleased with our results!
