I was able to earn this on level 01 on Story Mode on Normal Difficulty.
Feel free to do it on Easy.

I first built cannons blocking the top left and bottom right roads, and one in the middle of the rectangle.
After wave 2, I started upgrading them to yellow.
During wave 5, I started upgrading them to red.
During wave 13, I built 2 more cannons near the core housing and upgraded them to red.
During wave 18, I built one more cannon near the core housing and upgraded it to red.
I used the orbital laser during wave 20 to kill aliens from wave 19 and wave 20.
I ended the level with 5070 resources, if you somehow don't have this much you can just sell your cannon towers. Each one is worth 1050 resources.
