CANFIELD — Some students believe that the solution to navigating the surface of Mars is found floating here on Earth.

The NASA Mars Rover Project gave 10 school districts the chance to design models that could contribute to a rover being sent into space in 2020. Of the 20 teams in the Valley STEM Academy at the Mahoning County Career & Technical Center, one advanced.
