NASA is hosting its Fourth Annual Lunabotics Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex May 20-24, 2013. We hope members of SWE Region H will join us if they are in the Orlando area! International competitors from 50 universities have created unique and innovative solutions that NASA may one day use for an actual lunar excavation device or payload. Teams from Oakton Community College, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Purdue University, Iowa State University, University of North Dakota, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering will be competing and we hope that you will support their efforts.
These science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students are our future scientists, astronauts, engineers, physicists, and entrepreneurs. Visit the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and marvel as the Lunabots mine “moon dirt” in a race against the clock.
