Earth-Rover International Robotics Program Brings Together Seven University Teams and Youth from Three Countries
Earth-Rover International Robotics Design Competition
Earth-Rover will run over a 12-month period with plans to reach 10,000 youth.
Earth-Rover will test student's abilities in electrical engineering, computer science, robotics and mechanical engineering.
The highlight of Earth-Rover 2011 will be a robotics competition and conference hosted by the Technical University of Moldova
"The response from universities throughout the region has been remarkable. The first phase of the project is now underway with equipment in transit to seven university teams that will spend the next several months developing their remote exploration robots as part of their university curriculum," said David Lewis Anderson, President and CEO of the World Genesis Foundation. "The second phase of the project will lead to a final competition being hosted from September 22 to 24, 2011 by the Technical University of Moldova in Chisinau. The third and final phase will include educational demonstrations and use in the team's local communities. It is our hope that Earth-Rover will reach at least 10,000 youth within its first year. We are very grateful to all participating universities and especially the Earth-Rover Management team including Dan Milici, Victor Ababii, and Marin Podubnii for making the program possible."
