The race is for high school and college students who have designed and built non-motorized vehicles that resemble lunar rovers. Teams from all over the world participated, on a race course meant to resemble the surface of the moon. The winning moon buggies aren&rsquo;t actually going to space, but as Wyoming Public Radio&rsquo;s Willow Belden reports, the project is a major learning experience for the students.</p> Sat, 21 Apr 2012 00:35:48 +0000 Willow Belden 22889 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net UW students design and build mock lunar rovers
