Race like you’re on the moon; student team from your area to compete in NASA’s 10th Annual 'Great Moonbuggy Race'
It’s a human-powered "showdown" at NASA’s 10th Annual "Great Moonbuggy Race" April 11-12.
High school and college teams from 19 states and Puerto Rico will race like they’re on the Moon at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala.
In race-day action, teams fight the clock with two-member, coed crews powering and navigating moonbuggies over a half-mile, obstacle-strewn "lunar terrain" course.
Students develop real-world solutions to engineering challenges, inspired by the first lunar roving vehicle — designed, developed and tested by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville.
Talk with students from your area — live at the event — about the competition and their "Moonbuggy experience."
