EUMETSAT is launching a Minecraft satellite-building competition for 6-16 year olds this week
Friday, 11 November 2016
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.
More information about the competition is available on EUMETSAT’s youth education website.
