25 Jul Team Germany 2019 🇩🇪
Here we come… Team Germany has set its sails in the direction of Dubai to participate at the upcoming FIRST Global Challenge!
Team Germany is comprised of students from the International School of Hannover Region (ISHR) High School robotics team “The ISHR Mechanical Mustangs.” Over the last few months, the ISHR Mechanical Mustangs worked closely with a team from the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Gesamtschule (IGS) in Gottingen (IGS). As a way to reciprocate this partnership, we have invited students from IGS to join us. This is a way for our teams to work collaboratively, while learning from each other. No doubt, our participation is not only a huge honor for our teams and schools, but for all students in Germany as we will walk on the world stage proudly carrying the German flag, alongside many other countries.
Team Germany’s vision is to prepare and empower students for action and impact. Our mission is to inspire students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes as future leaders and innovators.
The FIRST Global Challenge is a once in a lifetime experience and we hope to catalyze the “multiplier effect” by inspiring students all over Germany to engage in future STEM activities, events, and careers. When asked what is perhaps the biggest challenge facing the German economy, the answer usually is “the lack of qualified and skilled knowledge workers – designers, engineers, and innovators for the future workforce.” This is where Team Germany comes in, as we aspire to inspire many other students as future engineers and innovators through a growth mindset and in knowing nothing is impossible if we set our minds on the challenge. Through our “multiplier effect,” Team Germany is here to help build the future of Germany’s innovative workforce as a world leader! We are very proud to be part of the FIRST Global Challenge and look forward to this fun and empowering experience.
