Are you ready for a mathematical space adventure? Prepare for a journey to the Planet Turasmara!

Turasmara is a distant planet with much intelligent life far, far away in another Galaxy. Turasmara is very proud of its eco-friendly traditions, but all of their supplies are transported by intergalactic spacecraft which uses a lot of fuel. They are looking for some Eco Champions to use their mathematical skills to help lessen the impact on their environment.

Challenge 1

Before you can set off on your mission to a land far, far away you first need to load the cargo deck.

Here is the cargo floor. The coloured pieces are the cargo that you need to try to fit onto the deck. The Company Director has said he will give you a bonus point if no two pieces of cargo of the same colour touch.
