25 Jul Team Vietnam 2019 🇻🇳
Team Vietnam 2019 is comprised of five high-school students from Vietnam STEAM Challengers, a STEAM community in Vietnam which was founded by Team Vietnam 2018 in order to promote and connect young STEAM enthusiasts in Vietnam.
The major difference between Team Vietnam 2019 compared to previous teams is that our team is more diverse in terms of origin, interest, ability, and gender. Our members come from all regions of Vietnam (northern, central, southern) and are experienced in more than robotics. As 60% of our team and our major team roles are played by girls, we wish to inspire and empower young Vietnamese girls to follow their passion and have the courage to participate in anything, especially the STEAM fields.
Team Vietnam, as well as Vietnam STEAM Challengers, seeks to spark a passion for innovation in STEAM in the minds of children and youth and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers in Vietnam. After three years of successfully organizing robotics competitions and multiple classes, workshops, and seminars for 7-13 year-old children in Hanoi, this year we aspire to launch a national Olympic-style robotics competition for 14-18 year-old students from many regions across Vietnam.
We are very honored to have the chance to represent our beloved country Vietnam in the 2019 FIRST Global Challenge. With our diversity, we strive to be a competent representation of Vietnam throughout the challenge and spread the image of the friendly, passionate Vietnamese youth. Moreover, we are excitedly looking forward to making cross-cultural friendships and collaborating graciously with young STEAM leaders from all over the world.
