The winner of last week's Emergency Challenge Competition was team Machine X! Team 112 took the second place! Atomic Energy and Team-4 did a great job mapping the area, but weren't able to provide the required shortest rout, so their results couldn't unfortunately be taken into account.
In the Emergency Challenge competition team members are devided into Earth and Mars teams. Team Mars needs to remotely map an area based on objects using cameras and a remotely controlled vehicle. Team Earth then needs to define a shortest route from starting point to all objects and back.
Luckily every team still has a chance to show what they got - next Wednesday, 24th of October, in the Final Competition! ... See MoreSee Less
Our Mars Suit Challenge competition this week was a tough one! Team Sisunautit took the first place, team Space Suit-Up the second place, and teams Pyramid Scheme and Epic Suit came in third and fourth.
Teams were evaluated based on the time they spent on our obstacle course which included mobility, balance and accuracy tasks, and the puncture resistance of the materials they chose fore their space suit mockup.

Team Suncatchers won our Greenhouse Challenge competition on Wednesday with outstanding points! Congratulations! Teams Grasshopper and Moles' Kingdom came in second and third.
The points were calculated based on the intensity of light they managed to collect and distribute in their greenhouse mockup and - of course - the weight of their system. We don't want to carry any unnecessary kilos to Mars!

The First Ever Epic Challenge Competition at yesterday's hangout event turned out fantastic!
We got some inspiring opening words from Mr. Robert Nemlander, the co-founder of @entocube, after which our students got to put their prototypes to test. Now they have two weeks to improve their solutions, and then the real trial will happen - in their Final Competition. Big thanks to all who took part in the event!
