RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- NASA declared the winners of the first NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama on Saturday.

Student racers from the Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology here in Reno took first place in the high school division. They raced to victory against 70 high school, college and university teams from 19 states, Puerto Rico, Germany, India, Mexico and Russia. More than 500 students, drivers, engineers and mechanics, along with team advisers and "cheering sections" took part in the competition.

This isn't the first time these high school engineers have competed in this international competition. In fact, in the last three years, AACT teams have won the Neil Armstrong Best Design Award, the Featherweight Award and the Rookie Team Award.

They've also placed in the top ten each year in the race against university and high school teams from around the world.
