Professional Level: Asteroid War
Created by: WSU Engineering Council
NASA has just discovered an asteroid that is hurtling towards earth. The President has been contacted and top scientists from all around have decided that the only way to save the earth and humanity is to destroy the asteroid. After quickly pooling resources and putting the best engineers from every nation together a gun turret has been created that is capable of destroying the asteroid. However, the ammunition is so sensitive that any slight jarring could cause it to detonate. Your team has been called upon to program a small robot to arm the weapon by placing the ammunition into the appropriate loading chambers. Remember all of civilization is counting on you!
There are two golf balls and two large Styrofoam balls (ammunition) on the game board. There are two smaller holes (turret loading chambers) dedicated for the golf balls and two larger holes dedicated for the Styrofoam balls.
