Students are required to design a human powered exploration rover to be completely built and driven by two of their team members. The NASA Rover Challenge course winds around rockets and other space vehicles including a Saturn moon rocket, an engineering test unit of the space shuttle with its external fuel tank and solid rocket boosters, and a model of the Lunar Excursion Module, or LEM. The total length of the course is about seven-tenths of one mile. It is strewn with miscellaneous extraterrestrial surface like obstacles distributed randomly over the course. One of the interesting terrains on the course is a crater area in which the life-size replica of the LEM is located.
AEDC STEM sponsors several High School teams.
