NASA is looking for Junior Engineers to design their next lunar rover!

Fall Semester 2021 Designs:

Auger Drill

These augers, designed to drill through rocks and moon dust, was designed by Felix. He used our 3D printer to build parts that he designed in CAD software. All of these skills were learned at PVNet!

Shape-shifting Wheels

This rover features shape-shifting wheels, and was designed by Eugene. These origami style wheels have the ability to expand or shrink, depending on the terrain. The auger arm also features a mechanical armature for collecting large samples.
