July 23, 2014 - A local robotics team has their mind set on the moon.

The Electric Dreams team from Iroquois Junior Senior High School was reaching out as part of the Google Lunar XPRIZE Moonbots competition.

After securing a spot in the top 25 for their video on why we should return to the moon, the group was showcasing their new Lego lunar rover to students from Allegheny and Erie County.

They're hoping the hard work will pay off in more ways than improving their scientific knowledge, since the winners of the competition win a trip to Hawaii.
