Are you ready to be part of the next race to the Moon? Last Wednesday, the X PRIZE Foundation, Google Inc., LEGO Systems, National Instruments, and Wired’s GeekDad announced “MoonBots: A Google Lunar X PRIZE LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Challenge” at National Instruments NIWeek 2009. This new contest challenges small teams, made up of children and adults, to design, program, and construct robots that perform simulated lunar missions similar to those required to win the $30 million Google Lunar X PRIZE.

Sounds intriguing! You can go to the MoonBots website to sign up to be notified by email when the competition begins. If you’re on Facebook, you can also find them there.
