Combining the enthusiasm for a green and healthy habitat with science and technology, the GREEN PLANET CHALLENGE robotics competition aims to stimulate and develop creativity and innovative spirit and provide development opportunities for young people. By organizing this competition, we want to promote both green science and the collaboration between mentors and students or pupils in order to develop the new generation of engineers, programmers and designers.
The competition is organized according to strict rules, including limited time and resources. Teams of pupils/students, guided by a mentor, are challenged to design, build and program fully autonomous robots to compete in the competition.
The competition is open to pupils and students aged 15-19 who are guided by a mentor. Volunteer professional mentors are invited to devote time and select talents to guide their team. A team will consist of 4-6 people and must be registered to participate in the competition by the mentor, by filling in a REGISTRATION FORM. Extended registration deadline – September 9, 2022.
REMINDER! Works (robots) that have already participated in other competitions or exhibitions cannot be presented at the current competition.
Teams will have 20 days (September 10-29, 2022) to design their works. Teams that do not have sufficient resources can request the infrastructure and kits necessary to participate in the competition.
The competition will end with the presentation of the works and jury decision at the FabLab Center of Excellence in Chisinau, on September 30, 2022. The winners will be announced in the evening of the same day, during the European Researchers' Night event, organized on September 30 in the UTM park, in Riscani sector of the capital. The winners of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will receive cash prizes, gifts and will benefit from budget admission to the Robotics and Mechatronics specialty at the Technical University of Moldova.
