This website contains review/assessment questions and a final exam from the NASA Robotics Education Project in Fall 2003. The course explored the geological wonders of the Rio Tinto of Southern Spain and described how scientists consider it to be a Mars Analog. The course featured eight lectures by scientists in the field and uncovered the challenges and techniques of discovering subsurface life within this system, including characteristics of the area of the Rio Tinto. The site consists of practice questions from the course and a link to the final exam.
