PLANETARY ROVER COMPETITION

NASA and the National Institute of Aerospace announced a new planetary rover engineering competition called Exploration Robo-Ops Student Challenge, according to NASA.

NASA’s actual Mars rovers, named Spirit and Opportunity, are mobile robots that have been exploring Mars since 2004.

University teams are eligible to win up to $10,000 for designing and building a planetary rover, then demonstrating its capability to perform a series of tasks at the NASA Johnson Space Center’s Rock Yard in Houston, Texas.

Graduate and undergraduate engineering teams with a faculty advisor are eligible to compete. Teams are required to submit a project plan proposal by Dec. 15.
