This Year's Challenge: 

IMPACT will be traveling to Huntsville Alabama the beginning of next year (April 11-13, 2020) to participate in NASA’s Human Exploration Rover Challenge. This challenge involves designing and building a two-person powered rover to mimic exoplanetary conditions and be able to traverse in challenging terrain. This allows IMPACT with the opportunity to compete competitively in a world-wide competition hosted by NASA in Alabama. The rover along with their two passengers will simulate the Apollo 14 mission and will have a time frame of six minutes to complete a variety of different missions on a 0.5-mile-long course.

Who are We?

We are IMPACT (Innovators Making Positive Advancement in Creative Technology), an engineering club consisting of students at Iowa State University. Our vision is to encompass many backgrounds and skills at Iowa State University and tackle real-world challenges. Our goal is to allow students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to make it tomorrow’s technology. Everything we do is behind one vision: to create an extraordinary world. 



Your Help!

Impact is a relatively new club on campus, rising in interest and cost, and is asking for your help in any way you can! Rest assured, your donation will go directly towards purchasing and manufacturing materials, along with aiding travel expenses to the competition.

But there's a possibility to help without money!
