APRA CATEGORIES

SAM LABS BASED CHALLENGE (AGE 6-9)

Mission - Environmental Protector

When discarded from human hands, where does rubbish ultimately end up? The United Nations estimated in 1991 that up to 80% of marine debris originates from land, with 40% of this waste being recyclable and renewable resources. In order to safeguard our planet and its oceans, it is imperative for robots to engage in the sorting of waste, enabling the recycling of resources and mitigating pollution.
