Robot Survival Challenge
Introduction The year is 2201. The earth as we know it no longer exists. Civilization has destroyed itself through nuclear wars, pollution, and lack of respect for the environment. The human race has all but ceased to exist. A group of multi-cultural scientists, doctors, and engineers have survived by living in a biosphere for the last 20 years. As they emerge from their protective sphere, they find the earth totally destroyed. They need to rebuild the earth and civilization. They will have to rebuild using only recycled materials that can be scavenged from the countryside. You are one of the engineers assigned to create mechanical machines that will help the scientists and doctors rebuild the earth. Requirements: The doctors and scientists need a vehicle that will take them over the rough terrain to search for other survivors and to collect data. The scientists need a solar collection dish. The dish should be angled toward the sun and must be able to rotate to follow the sun’s rays. For all members to survive, they must have food, water, and shelter. This means pumping water from the ground, cutting wood for building, and grinding grain for flour to eat. One machine must run all three tasks to conserve energy.Read More
