NASA seeks Student Teams to Stimulate Human Exploration of Other Worlds

NASA is tapping student teams to stimulate human exploration of other worlds by debuting a new engineering design challenge. The NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge is a more complex follow-on to the successful NASA Great Moonbuggy Race, and will engage students worldwide in the next phase of human space exploration.

The competition is open to high school and college students and challenges them to create a vehicle designed to traverse the stimulated surface of another world. Registration closes January 10 for international teams, and February 7 for U.S. teams. Designed with NASA's committment to sending humans to Mars by 2030 in mind, the results of the competition will contribute to the design process for NASA's future exploration goals. The student teams will be timed, ranked, and scored based on design, safety, and how well their vehicles traverse the set course.
