Anatomy of a Rover: The Mechanics of a Winning Student Vehicle Design
NASA’s Human Exploration Rover Challenge isn’t for the faint of heart. The critical thinking that goes into designing rovers and the hours spent building them require dedication from teams of students from high schools, colleges and universities around the world.
The 26th annual challenge, managed by the Office of STEM Engagement at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, will be held April 17-18, 2020, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville. It is one of six Artemis Student Challenges that NASA hosts to engage, inspire and help develop the next generation into science, technology engineering and math. The competition requires the students — members of the Artemis Generation — to design, build, test and develop a human-powered rover and innovative technologies, tools and plans needed to succeed on a difficult course mimicking features seen on other worlds and moons across the solar system.
