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.
