Middle school students in Indiana and Australia

Middle school students in Indiana and Australia are building edible moon rovers, with the idea that if you're going to ship a car to the moon or Mars, why not have it be edible when you get there?

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!
