November 16, 2012 — Make Your Own Moonbuggy

Registration is now open for the 20th annual NASA Great Moonbuggy Race, which challenges high school, college and university students around the world to build and race fast, lightweight "moonbuggies" of their own design. The students' work will culminate in two days of competitive racing April 26-27, 2013, at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. NASA created the event two decades ago to complement classroom learning, provide young thinkers and builders with real-world engineering experience and inspire them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics—the STEM fields. New Jersey teams have won in the past! Read more and register at http://www.nasa.gov/topics/technology/moonbuggy/index.html.
