NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge

*Due to COVID-19, some festivals or events may be cancelled or postponed in 2020. Please check with host organizations to confirm.

Every April, the most brilliant young minds gather in Huntsville to participate in the NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge, a student competition designed to spark ideas for interplanetary exploration that's hosted by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Over a weekend, student teams of six members are tasked with building human-powered rovers to navigate a half-mile obstacle course made to mimic extraterrestrial terrain like craters, boulders, inclines and ridges! And spectators are welcome – even encouraged.

Not only is the Rover Challenge just so “Huntsville,” it’s also a super fun and ingenious way to inspire future generations to think about the technical and logistical challenges of future space exploration.
