    Broad Run team to compete in NASA challenge

    A team from Broad Run High School will be competing in NASA's Human Exploration Rover Challenge at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. on April 10-12.

    The team will be part of more than 90 high school and college teams from seven countries and 19 states that will test their skills in a new competition for future engineers — NASA’s Human Exploration Rover Challenge.

    For more than 20 years, students from around the globe have visited the Space & Rocket Center to participate in the Great Moonbuggy Race. During its 20-year-run, the race engaged thousands of students, challenging them to solve complex problems.

    NASA made the change from Moonbuggy to Rover Challenge to focus on the agency’s plans to explore planets, moons, asteroids and comets, all members of the solar system family.

    For the Human Exploration Rover Challenge, students will design and build vehicles to power around a difficult and rugged course at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. The Space & Rocket Center staff is constructing this year’s course, which contains five new obstacles and a total of 15 for teams to conquer.

    There are a number of awards being given out this year including trophies, cash and bragging rights.
