FFG Competition for 6 to 14 year old children

The FFG funded project MOONWALK developing and testing technologies and training processes for astronauts and robots on future moon- and mars missions. Robots can assist the astronauts in many ways: In transportation and installation of equipment, by exploring difficult or dangerous places and in rescue operations. Technologies and processes for space are simulated on Earth in advance.

As part of the MOONWALK project two space simulations are performed: A Mars-simulation in the region of Rio Tinto in Spain and a lunar-simulation on the seabed near Marseille .

Children ages 6-14 can participate with their ideas on both simulations.

What to do:

  • For the Mars Simulation: What would you say if you were the first person who enters the Mars ?
  • For the moon simulation: Draw a completely new flag for the moon!

What to win:

A trip to the Simulation-Mission-Control-Centre in Brussels (along with one parent or authorized representative ): participation in the Broadcast from Rio Tinto and Marseille together with the Flight Director.

Deadline for submissions: April 1, 2016
