2019 Game: Ocean Opportunities

The theme of the 2019 FIRST Global Challenge was “Ocean Opportunities”. Every year millions of tons of pollutants, generated by human activity, make their way into the world’s oceans, negatively affecting marine life and global populations. This Challenge brought attention to this critical issue in order to educate ourselves and take action to preserve our oceans and wildlife, and teams learned about real-world challenges related to cleaning up the world’s oceans.
