MAKING THINGS MOVE I
Hello Citizens of the city,
During Machhindranath Jatra last year we had an accident causing over 30 people to be seriously hurt. This year to prevent such incidents we want to make the rath that wouldn’t require people in such large numbers to pull it. So we want our citizens to come up with ideas on how we can reduce the number of people required to operate Machhindrath’s rath and make it safer. We need you to submit prototypes of your solution to the mayor’s office.

Greetings Young Apprentice
We are really happy to be welcoming you to the Kathmandu’s wing of Willy Wonka’s toy factory. You will be learning and creating delightful toys for young kids and creating wonderful experiences for them.
Kids need to move! And we need to build toys that get energetic kids to move in non-destructive ways. So as an apprentice you will be building moving toys that would also encourage kids to move.

TALKING TO SATELLITES
In 2075 CE global warming, pollution and rapid population growth have made it impossible for all of us to live on the earth. Scientists have identified other habitable planets and humans are planning to move one-quarter of the population to the planet in 5 years. The only communication channel between people living on the earth and the other planet will be through satellites. In 2075 CE, it is now important for everyone to learn about workings of satellites and how to talk to them.
