Local child science prodigies are international finalists for Google Lunar XPRIZE’s Moonbots Challenge

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Museum of Discovery and Science will host the robotics team of Hadley and Delaney Robertson, residents of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  The nine-year-old twin sisters  have been named one of 30 international finalists in the 2015 Moonbots Challenge, an international competition associated with the Google Lunar XPRIZE that challenges youth from 8 to 17 years old to form a team (2-4 members) and design, create and program their own robots.  Through a generous donation from the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation and VEX Robotics, Inc., all finalists receive robotics sets and educational guides, which they are asked to donate to deserving organizations. 


Waste-To-Energy Plants

Waste-to-Energy Plants

In 1991, two state-of-the-art plants opened with three primary functions: (1) to provide an environmentally safe and cost-effective solid waste disposal solution; (2) to recover energy and recyclable ferrous metals; and (3) to reduce the amount of waste subject to landfilling. Each year, the plants generate enough electricity to service about 75,000 households in our community at an energy savings of 2.8 million barrels of oil.
