27 Jul Team South Sudan 2019 🇸🇸
Team South Sudan Robotic was established in Feb 2017 by Team Manager Kuc Mayur Kuc, Team Engineer Richard Ring Kuach Malek, and Samuel Garang Akau of the University of Juba, School of Public Service and Youth empowerment Network South Sudan with an enthusiasm to move and urge South Sudanese youth to embrace and study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), and enable them to develop their talent and innovation to think in solving real-world problems in the areas of agriculture, energy and more.
The team has much desire for the future of the new nation to be shown in the progression of science and innovation as a tool for solving their critical problems, such as conflicts, food insecurity, water and healthcare, among others.
Team South Sudan appreciates FIRST Global for giving a rare tremendous opportunity and logistics support to its team members to participate in the FIRST Global Challenge in July 2017, Washington DC, USA. South Sudan Robotic team was awarded the gold medal for courageous achievement, recognizing the challenges the team faced in building the robot.
The aim is to mobilize and encourage South Sudanese youth from the age of 18 years and below to join and participate in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) innovation and creativity. The skills acquired through STEM will be applied in the development of our country. The use of technology, such as Energy, boosts the production and development of various fields. Currently most of the population uses generators as the source of energy instead of using hydropower or renewable energy such solar power, which would help us fight environmental pollution caused by the use of diesel and fuel.
