NASA’s Fifth Annual Robotic Mining Competition

NASA is hosting its Fifth Annual Robotic Mining Competition at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex May 19-23, 2014.  We hope members of SWE Region H will join us if they are in the Orlando area!  Competitors from 39 universities have created unique and innovative solutions that NASA may one day use for an actual excavation device or payload.  Teams from Oakton Community College, the University of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Iowa State University, the University of Michigan, the University of North Dakota, the South Dakota School of Mines, 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 robotic excavators mine “Martian dirt” in a race against the clock.
