My robot’s name is Vernie. When you press a button, the retractable spade-shaped scoop will dig regolith, and it will be 7x10 inches. The scoop can move and dump the regolith into a bucket on top of the robot’s head or the hole in the body. There are 9- inch wheels on each corner. The tires are heavy-duty rubber so they can move on the moon. It has two arms for arm actions. The fingers have joints and can help dig the regolith. They are 12 inches long in the middle of the left and right sides. The robot will be wireless. It has two moveable cameras. It will be able to pick up and move a medium amount of dirt per trip. It will be made from a material that looks like silver metal, but it will be made from hard plastic so the regolith won’t stick as easily.
