Competition

The NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge will be held in April at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. The challenge will focus on designing, constructing and testing technologies for mobility devices to perform in different environments. This challenge will provide valuable experiences that engage students in the technologies and concepts that will be needed in future exploration missions. Rovers will be human-powered and carry two students, one female and one male, over a half-mile obstacle course of simulated extraterrestrial terrain of craters, boulders, ridges, inclines, crevasses and depressions. Each student team of six members is responsible for building their own rover, and the two course drivers must be chosen from the team. The competition is open to high school and university students, with the registration period from January to February.
