X PRIZE Cup Competitions for Future Spacers

In addition to the rocket launches and Rocket Racing league rocketplanes, the X PRIZE Cup is going to include a number of fun competitions designed for the younger space fans. This includes driving rovers on a moonscape, model rocket painting and launching, balloon rockets, rocket designs to protect a delicate egg payload (I've seen something similar in a science museum), and Lego space elevator climbers.

That's just through grade 8!

For high school students, there will be a space art contest, and also a contest to come up with the best design (as judged by the public with votes) space contest that will be promoted later, with a scholarship going to the winner.

No matter if you're 8 or 80, get to the 2007 X PRIZE Cup this year!
