For the 2013 competition, elementary and middle school teams must build autonomous robots from LEGO Mindstorm kits to navigate curving tracks simulating the launch facilities at NASA and a space course to Mars, making each trip as quickly and accurately as possible.

The competition will include teams from Auburn Elementary, Bowling Green Junior High, Potter-Gray Elementary, Bluegrass Christian, Cub Run, Cumberland Trace Elementary, Drakes Creek Middle, Moss Middle, Plano Elementary, Rockfield Elementary, Simpson County 4-H, South Warren Middle and Warren Elementary.
