ENGS 76: Machine Engineering Rover Competition



5:00pm - 7:00pm ET

GlycoFi Atrium, MacLean ESC

Seven teams designed and fabricated remote-controlled rovers to navigate a simulated Mars terrain and collect objects. Each team needs to investigate a previous mission crash, recover debris for inspection, and search for any signs of alien life reported in the area.

The mission is to explore the new world, traversing desert flats, boulder fields, and a rocky ridgeline. Each team must collect samples and supplies and return to the lander cube within five minutes to ensure enough power.

Come cheer them on!
