Mars Rover Celebration

Judges & Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in serving as a Judge and/or Volunteer for the Mars Rover Celebration! Please click on the link below to complete the registration process.

Judging for 2023 MRC will take place in-person utilizing the mobile judging platform RocketJudge. RocketJudge is web-based, so there is no app to download. All judges need is an internet connection. Judges must use a data equipped device (tablet, cell phone, etc.). This can be access via Wi-Fi or cellular data.

Important Dates for Judges!

To serve as a Judge you do not need to be a Rocket Scientist! Mars Rover Judges will receive detailed step by step training materials prior to the competition.
