NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge

Ages:High School, Undergraduate

Type:Performance

Category:STEM

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The Human Exploration Rover Challenge will focus on designing, constructing and testing technologies for mobility devices to perform in these different environments, and it will provide valuable experiences that engage students in the technologies and concepts that will be needed in future exploration missions.

Students will build their own human-powered rovers. During the competition rovers will be carried to a race course by two students, one female and one male who will drive the rover over a half-mile obstacle course of simulated extraterrestrial terrain of craters, boulders, ridges, inclines, crevasses and depressions.

Students are evaluated on rover design and performance metrics as the race around the course.
