Idaho Teaching Engineering to CHildren (Idaho TECH)

Idaho Tech. Mars Rover Challenge

What is it?

Idaho TECH is a STEM competition sponsored by the NASA Idaho Space Grant Consortium (ISGC). Students in 4th through 6th grades work together as teams to design and construct Mars Rover models out of Lego® and non-Lego components. The teams test their models at an Idaho TECH Engineering Design Competition (EDC), held in Pocatello or Moscow.

Who can join?

Idaho teachers, parents, or other community members who can create at least one team of four to six 4th – 6th graders. Incorporate lesson plans into school lesson plans, an after-school program, a boy/girl scouts group, a religious group, etc.

How do I get started?
