Student Rover Challenge teams learn how to teach machines to do dangerous, dirty and dull (repetitive) jobs. They think innovatively about how these emerging technologies can improve your life, project, business and/or community. To lead in the competition, teams must engineer a robust Rover and build a strong event strategy.  That will get them half-way there.  As in professional life, teams must also have a strong R&D focus (Data-Driven Design and MODS), marketing strategy and work toward becoming leaders in their communities.

Rover teams compete online in an annual points race and face-to-face at Open Invitationals across the country. Points leaders and Invitational winners are invited to the NSL Finals at Homestead-Miami Speedway where they compete in these events and activities:
