Recently, the MoonBots Challenge announced its final field of 20 teams, down from more than 200 who initially entered the competition. The teams entering the second phase of the challenge hail from 13 different states, South Africa and Belgium.
All of the Phase 2 teams recently received Lego Mindstorms kits and have begun building robots to try to fulfill different challenges that were developed to simulate similar guidelines to the Lunar X Prize.
The remaining teams will compete against each other on points for completing the challenges, but will also be judged on creating a team documentary. Prizes will be awarded to the third and second place teams, and the grand prize winning team will travel to Billund to tour Lego’s headquarters. Congratulations to all the Phase 2 teams and good luck in the finals!
