The competition required US and international student teams to design, develop, and test a human-powered rover on a track that mimicked the topography found on rocky worlds throughout the solar system.
While negotiating the course, the teams also completed mission tasks such as sample retrievals and spectrographic analyses.
"This year, students were instructed to build a course that would imitate obstacles as if they were competing in Huntsville," Aundra Brooks-Davenport, the challenge's activity lead, said on Tuesday.
"The safety of the squad was a primary consideration when designing their own obstacles. We're looking forward to the virtual competition and the opportunities it has afforded our teams "According to Ms. Brooks-Davenport.
The STEM Engagement Award in the High School division went to Punjab's Decent Children Model Presidency School. According to the statement, the team from Vellore Institute of Technology in Tamil Nadu was named the winner of the Social Media Award in the College/University section.
