This challenge is written to highlight the importance of water and its link to life on earth, but in a very silly way.
Your mission is to rescue our water, the universal key to life, before the Buckethead aliens find out. However, once the alarm has been raised it’s a race against the clock to cross the swamps, build your buggy and drive it through their planet to escape.
If you make it (unlikely!) you need to build a rocket and fire your precious water safely back to earth before you get caught.
Teams will have to think together and solve problems quickly in a variety of situations.
They will have to plan ahead, consider the consequences of their actions and learn by their mistakes.
