The NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge was held April 16-18, 2015, at the U. S. Space & Rocket Center. The challenge focused on designing, constructing and testing technologies for mobility devices to perform in these different environments, and it provided valuable experiences that engaged students in the technologies and concepts that will be needed in future exploration missions.

Rovers are human-powered and carry two students, one female and one male, over a half-mile obstacle course of simulated extraterrestrial terrain of craters, boulders, ridges, inclines, crevasses and depressions. 

The Team was sponsored by Kehin, Ninestar, Hancock Wellness Center, Greenfield-Central School Foundation, Mary Haberman, Owner, Pins & Needles, and Family Bike Chain.  To see pictures and video of the competition, rovers, and team go to the website at .
