Forest fires are a problem in Canada every summer. Fires regularly destroy big parts of the forest. And sometimes the fire comes close to a village so people have to be rescued to safe areas. Fires start and spread in hot, dry weather. Climate change causes longer summers that are very dry. Canada has to deal with the growing danger.
This year, the challenge is to make a robot that can fight forest fire and rescue people to safe areas. Furthermore, the robot must also plant new trees to replace the burned-out trees.
