Announcing MoonBots 2.0

A Google Lunar X PRIZE LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Challenge!


MoonBots 20

The X Prize Foundation and the LEGO® Group are back for more!

MoonBots 2.0 is the second annual contest that challenges teams of students (ages 9-17) and adults to learn about robotics, the Moon, and space exploration by designing and constructing a LEGO MINDSTORMS® robot that performs simulated lunar missions.


The MoonBots 2.0 challenge is divided into two phases:


Phase I (May 9-June 13)

During Phase I, teams will submit a written proposal stating why their robot should be funded and a video documenting their interest in space exploration. Twenty teams will be selected to move on to Phase II.


Phase II (June 27-August 15)

During Phase II, teams will be required to submit a digital design proposal of their robot and will be asked to complete a STEM outreach project for their local community or an online community. In addition, teams will be given a LEGO MINDSTORMS set and a MoonBots challenge field and must build their robot and solve the lunar challenge (details to be announced at a later date). A live, online video demonstration caps the team experience!

All registered teams will win prizes. First-, second-, and third-place Phase II winners will receive a FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, or FIRST Robotics Challenge registration, with the grand prize being a VIP trip to the opening of LEGOLAND Florida! 

To learn more or register a team, visit www.MoonBots.org! Contest registration and Phase I is May 9-June 13, 2011. There is no cost to participate. Sign up today!
