They should make the rovers out of crackers, so they'll have something to eat with all that delicious moon cheese.

Was I the only one who instantly thought of this [imdb.com] when I read that?

That's wonderful; it makes me wish I still taught middle school science. Middle schoolers always jumped all over design challenges in my school.

On a pedantic note, there's no such thing as a 'middle school' in Australia... only primary school and high school. Having said that, I hope the Australian kids come up with a design that goes well with Vegemite!
