The 2018 Challenge

The challenge is to establish a climber structure in compliance with predetermined requirements. The challenge is focused on the efficiency of the climber and the payload system. For the 2018 challenge we decided to allow participants with a lower scientific or technical background to compete in a second level with lower requirements (Beginner’s Level).
