Build a weather satellite in Minecraft?

minecraft

EUMETSAT is launching a Minecraft satellite-building competition for 6-16 year olds this week.

The aim of the competition is to get competitors to build a model of one or more of EUMETSAT’s weather satellites in Minecraft, or to be creative and design their own satellite from scratch. The closing date of the competition is April 30 2015.

All entries will be displayed on the EUMETSAT Learning Zone website and the winners of the two categories will each get Lego Mindstorms. There will also be runners-up prizes of Raspberry Pi (mini PC) starter kits.

More information about the competition is available on EUMETSAT’s Youth Education website at: l-zone.info/minecraft-competition-2015.

EUMETSAT operates Europe’s weather satellites, including Meteosat-7, 8, -9 and -10 and Metop-A and –B. Find out more at: www.eumetsat.int.
