In the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship made famous by Google’s $30 million Lunar X Prize, a private race to safely land a robot on the surface of the moon, travel 500 meters across the lunar surface, and send images and data back to the Earth, the X Prize Foundation, Lego, and Google have partnered to develop a youth educational challenge.

Similarly based on engineering, science, and problem solving, teams from around the world are working to build and program a robot that can navigate obstacles and complete tasks on the simulated lunar Lego game board.
