What: Student teams test their design and engineering skills, as well as
their physical endurance. They must design, construct and race a
human-powered vehicle over a half-mile course that includes simulated lunar
terrain. Two-member teams — one male and one female – are judged by vehicle
assembly time, plus time through the course. The race is inspired by
development of the first lunar roving vehicle, a program managed by NASA’s
Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.
