Introduction

MySolarBot Challenge is a competition organised and sponsored by Brainchild Ltd. for users of Brainchild Products and Brainchild Solar Robots for the purpose of promoting the use of solar energy technology and/or green technology for children's educational studies and to have fun at the same time.

The objective of the MySolarBot Challenge is to allow qualified schools, educational and science institutions as well as individuals to design interesting and creative solar robots, record and submit them in video files by uploading the files to MySolarBot’s web site to compete for prizes and trophies for the best design in the various categories of entry.
