The Carleton Planetary Robotics Team (CPRT) is a student-run group a part of Carleton University from Ottawa, Canada aiming to design, build, and program a Mars Rover to compete in international competitions. Every year, our goal is to compete in the University Rover Challenge and the Canadian International Rover Challenge (hosted in Hanksville, Utah and Drumheller, Alberta).

The team is made up of over 50 undergraduate and graduate students from all the Faculty of Engineering and Design as well as the Faculty of Science.

Coming up is Giving Tuesday, on December 3rd, 2019! We have set up our FutureFunder campaign here. Carleton University will be matching any donation of up to $10,000 for the entire day, starting from midnight and going until 11:59 PM!

The team is excited to announce a finish of 17th out of 84 teams at the 2019 University Rover Challenge!
