15 Mar Team Tunisia 2018
We are five passionate high school students, aged 16 years old, from Sfax supported and coached by two outstanding mentors, Mrs. Faten and Mr. Rabeh, dreaming of a powerful future generation and representing Tunisia in the 2018 FIRST Global Challenge.
We are a unique team of 4 girls and a boy sharing the same interest in technology.
Our story began in 2014 when a huge love for technology united us together in a Tunisian nonprofit association founded by our two inspiring mentors — First Skills Club; the organization equips kids through a high-quality teaching program allowing them to learn and communicate in English via STEM education.
Our journey into technology didn’t stop here, we moved up over 2 years into the stage of evolving young minds in STEM activities and tech classes by transmitting our skills and knowledge acquired to the next generation of our country as coaches in the First Skills Club.
We feel so motivated to be nominated to represent Tunisia in this Olympic games of robotics as a national team — that’s why we’ve been challenging our limits to attempt this lifelong goal and proudly honor the national colors.
That’s why, in our eyes, FIRST Global 2018 is not only an opportunity to honor our country Tunisia and to prove that Tunisian teens are skilled enough to build and program robots, but also, it is a chance that incentivizes us to work harder in order to continue last year’s success and achieve our common goals.
So, upon return home, we will invest our time and energy in spreading the knowledge and skills acquired during this unique competition into involving more kids in STEM education and helping Tunisian teens to gain new skills in robotics and problem-solving.
We can’t wait to take part in FIRST Global as we’ve been really impatient to be a part of the diverse life-changing experience we will have when networking, exchanging knowledge and building lasting partnerships and lifelong friendships with worldwide teams.
Since 1990, Tunisian primary energy consumption has increased in a roughly linear way, with approximately 4,500 ktoe in 1990, 6,700 ktoe in 2000 and 8,300 ktoe in 2010 (without biomass). The Tunisian energy situation has drastically changed in the last two decades. Resulting from the economic development, primary energy demand has risen in a significantly steeper way than production.
