The scenario of a rescue after a disaster on Mars could be in the movie « The Martian ». But during this collaborative rescue action everything, except Mars, is real: remote controlled robots, communication delays due to distance, teams of robot operators that are thousands of kilometres away from each other but working together to succeed in their mission.

Small detail : the operators are more than 100, are between 8 and 16 years old, will learn robot programming during the event and will be distributed in 16 teams across Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, Russia and South Africa. The mission will starts on November 4th, 13:30 Swiss time, and will be broadcasted live on Youtube. We connect EPFL with a max of 16 groups of children spread around Switzerland, Europe and South Africa.

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
