Challenge: make a solar-powered robot that melts sand into crappy solar panels with 1% efficiency and wires them up into an electricity-generating array. The robot that creates most electricity production per day wins.

10 simple tricks you can do to stop climate change:

1. Shut down all coal/gas/oil power plants.
2. Stop factories from using fossil electricity.
3. Stop clearing new farmland.
4. Stop making steel and iron.
5. Stop building with concrete.
6. Stop transporting things and people.
7. Build a huge number of solar-powered machines that suck CO2 out of the atmosphere and the oceans and split it into solid carbon and oxygen.
8. Convert all engines to use electricity.
9. Produce all electricity using solar power.
10. Build a huge freezer-harness to keep the Greenland and Antarctic glaciers intact and frozen.
