Team Paraguay 2019 🇵🇾

Coming from Centro Educativos Los Laureles School, Asuncion-Paraguay, Team Paraguay is composed of a group of Talented Students and professional teachers whose passions are directly building robots to make opportunities around our Paraguay community.

Our talented students are Manuel Carné, Karen Colman, Santiago Mersch, Jan Kesler and Fabrizio Franco, who are excited to put in the greatest effort to collaborate in the care of aqua preservation and cleaning the aqua life in the Ocean.

Our mission in the FIRST Global Challenge is having a great experience building robots, making leadership and co-working with other foreign countries, and of course winning the challenge.

We are proud for representing our Paraguay country, showing who we are and how we stand for the STEAM in our people. Robotics and computer programming have been our passion for making technology and overall having fun doing what we love.

Yvurupe robot has been designed and inspired by the traditional Guarani Aqua Plant “Yvurupe”, which represents the healthy and cleanest vibe for the aqua life. Paraguay is a mediterrean country in South America, however we take the greatest effort for helping to preserve aqua life in rivers and lakes for the Ocean Opportunities Challenge.

We got started building the Yvurupe robot, and the teamwork was fantastic when we created our own ideas, then building every mechanism in the robot (every detail) and finally sharing our experience to our Paraguay community and around the world.

Our experiences in computer programming are the greatest skills we have, because the programmer mentor prof. José Avalos and some of our students had been participating in the Microsoft competition in Computer Programming application (Software application). Our Mechatronic Mentor, Univ. Yan Bajac, has been also participating in some national robot sumo competition and the last FIRST robotics Competition (FRC) as a mentor with the team 6982 considered the most active volunteering and robot maker in national and international events in Paraguay promoting STEAM in developing new technology for helping people.

We wish to meet new friends at the FIRST Global Challenge, and we also want to show our skill technically through our robot, showing our Paraguay skills. We want to give our own collaboration and help for having a great experience with the rest of our friendly world. We hope to see, you my friends, soon!
