The name of the robot that will walk on Mars, Name: NASA's upcoming Rover is scheduled to land on Mars in February 2021, but it still lacks one vital component: a name. 

In order to create interest in the mission, and inspire students to join STEM topics that make space exploration possible, NASA sponsors a competition called Name the Rover.

It is open to K-12 students in public and private schools and schools in the United States, an essay contest in which students will be asked to name the spacecraft and explain the reasons behind their nomination.

If you or a student in your family or class (if you are a teacher) want to try it, this is very simple. 

Just go to the Rover Challenge name page, and click "Register Student and Teacher". Entries will be judged on the importance and originality of both the name and the chosen essay.
