The aim of the competition is to either build the best Minecraft model of the Sentinel-3 or Jason-3 ocean-monitoring satellites, or to design a new ocean satellite and maybe even an ocean monitoring system with satellites, buoys, automatic robots etc.
All entries will be displayed on the EUMETSAT competition site and the winners of the three age categories (6-8, 9-11, and 12-16) will each get iPads and there will be runners-up prizes of Raspberry Pi (mini PC) starter kits.

The competition is being organised in association with the European Commission’s Copernicus Programme  and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission.

More information about the competition is available on EUMETSAT’s youth education website.
