Lunar Knights Mining Club

The Lunar Knights is a team of undergraduate and graduate students that are directed towards enlightening students about the importance of mining in both Earth and Space environments. We have also received the honor of representing the University of Central Florida at the annual NASA Robotic Mining Competition in May 2017 at Kennedy Space Center. The NASA Robotic Mining Competition is a yearly competition that challenges university level students to design, build and test a robot that will traverse, mine and deposit at least one kilogram of icy regolith within a ten minute time constraint. Over 50 universities around the country are competing in the event and we are proud to have the opportunity to represent UCF in this prestigious competition.The University of Central Florida Lunar Knights Mining Club is an interdisciplinary team of undergraduate and graduate students that are directed towards enlightening students about the importance of mining and researching new mining techniques related to both Earth and Space environments. During the 2017 season our club won first place in the Social Media and Public Engagement award, and won 17th place overall. During this past season we took a gap year to perfect our new redesign. We will be presenting at Makerfair our new robot that we will be competing in the 2019 season with.
