Project "ABC"-Autonomously Beautify Countryside

The Gondwanan people are quite proud of their planet and its beauty and while hosting the intergalactic millennium conference wish to make a good impression on visiting dignitaries. It is proposed that an autonomous device be designed and trialled to accurately and rapidly distribute wild flower seeds along the planet's highways and byways.

In the "ACME Pinnacle Laboratory", the Gondwanan Horticultural Society is struggling to arrive at a design that might be feasible. Fortunately, teams of engineering students from Earth are about to visit Gondwana as part of their work experience programmes. On previous visits engineering students have rendered invaluable assistance, and the Gondwanans again seek help from these budding engineers.
