XPrize After Earth Challenge

XPrize: After Earth Challenge

There is an exciting new challenge for kids between the ages of 13 and 17.  How can you enter?

  • First you must create a 2 minute video, explaining how you would tackle two global issues that affect Planet Earth.  You also have to outline a plan of how you would use an unmanned rover to explore an new planet, to ensure its suitability as a human settlement.
  • You must submit the video before the July 17 deadline.
  • Get your friends, neighbours and all of your family (including that weird cousin) to vote for you.
  • 10 teams will go the next round where they will receive a very nice video camera and LEGO MINDSTORMS kit to document and complete the final mission.

The grand prize?  Well, perhaps you should check out the site: [LINK] to find out more!
