National Teams Attending – 2018

The FIRST Global Challenge is a truly international robotics event with more than 150 nations across the world traveling to Mexico City to participate in the game that will be held in a different nation each year.

Participating teams are composed of students – aged 14 through 18 years old– with the common goal of increasing their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics so that they can become the next generation of scientific leaders who will work together to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems from food security and access to clean water, to finding better medicines and securing cyberspace.
