Venezuela on the road to the world of FIRST Global 2017 Robotics
Translated from Spanish.
The FIRST Global Challenge is an international robotics event with more than 100 countries from around the world. These delegations will travel to Washington, D.C. next July to participate in the inaugural game to be held in the capital of a different nation every year.
The participating teams are composed of students between the ages of 15 and 18 who receive tutoring from Engineering students, teachers or professionals in the area 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, such as food security and access to safe drinking water, finding better medicines and ensuring cyberspace.
