2009 Regolith Excavation Challenge
Technology - Science
There are 23 teams competing for the $750,000 prize purse, provided by the NASA Centennial Challenges program.
The Regolith Excavation Challenge will be open to the public with no admission fee. There will be exhibits and speakers focused on highlighting hands-on education projects, robotics, and space exploration. One of our goals is to raise awareness of STEM careers by providing an opportunity to see, in person, the results of hands-on projects in space exploration and robotics. The competition attempts will be taking place at NASA Ames Research Center.
The Regolith Excavation Challenge is being organized by the California Space Education and Workforce Institute, co-hosted by the California Space Authority, in collaboration with the NASA Lunar Science Institute.
