Volunteer opportunities are available for the upcoming 12th annual Mars Rover Celebration, being held January 25 at the University of Houston Hilton Conrad Hilton Ballroom. The Mars Rover Celebration invites elementary and middle school students to compete in the design and construction of a rover model to carry out a "mission" on Mars. This year, around 750 student participants are expected.

Volunteers are needed for morning and afternoon shifts in areas of judging, guiding tours and administrative support. Judges will be trained on-site. For tour guide opportunities, Engineering students will be given preference along with NSM and Technology students and recent alumni. Click here for volunteer registration.
