MoonBots-in-a-Box is a spin-off educational project of the MoonBots Challenge. This project has been specially created for Science Centers to use with audiences all over the world. Participants will get an opportunity to show off their robotics skills by maneuvering a one-of-a-kind Google Lunar XPRIZE LEGO MINDSTORMS robot on a specially designed moonscape playfield.
Dates and times may vary depending on the planetarium. We recommend contacting the planetarium for up to date information.

"The thoughts of all of us at the XPRIZE Foundation are with the families of the brave test pilots of SpaceShipTwo. An endeavor this bold comes with calculated risk, as have countless other endeavors to explore our world and to expand our horizons throughout history. We believe that the ultimate benefits to humanity far outweigh the risks involved in human spaceflight. We support the pioneering efforts of Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites and we must all resolve that the courage of these pilots is never forgotten and their cause never abandoned.” - Robert K.
