Children at a primary school in Milton Keynes are investigating the Martian landscape using their own Pathfinder buggy - courtesy of Peter Whalley's Hyperbuggy software. Using pictures of the Mars mission from NASA's Pathfinder site, pupils at Heronsgate school have recreated the Mars rover's surroundings and are navigating them using their own buggy. The buggy is programmed by the children using an actor-based control language that allows them to develop their programs using role-play.

For more information see the project reports on the Heronsgate school web site at: http://met. open.ac.uk/heronsgate/projects/mars/buggy.html
