Landroids is the grand winner of Google X PRIZE Moonbots challenge

After winning the 1st place prize for the 8th grade National eCYBERMISSION Award in June, 2010 for their science research, team Landroids of Livingston Robotics Club, from Livingston NJ, has won the 1st place in the international Google X PRIZE Moonbots Challenge for their robot design this summer. Landroids was selected by a panel of expert judges as the grand winner among more than 200 teams of students ages 9 – 18 from 16 countries around the world. The students were designing and using LEGO bricks and MINDSTORM to create simulated lunar rover. The competition was done in two phases. The first phase was completed with the announcement of 20 finalists in June 2010. The second phase competition was concluded in August which required each team to create a website, produce a team documentary video and conduct a live webcast through Skype of their robot mission. Yesterday’s announcement of the winners included the second and third place winners from California and New Jersey/Connecticut. Landroids will be invited to Denmark to visit the LEGO headquarter and executives as part of the grand winning prize.
