For these seven young men from Tunisia, participating in the FIRST Global Challenge this year in Washington DC is an opportunity to make their country proud, as they enhance their STEM skills and knowledge alongside more than 150 nations. They believe that it is through advancements in technology and robotics that many great young minds like themselves can solve our world’s most pressing issues, such as water security, which affects all countries and is responsible for the death of a child every 60 seconds.

Interestingly, these motivated teens do not measure success in medals, trophies, or widespread recognition; instead, they believe success comes in the form of exchanging ideas, cultures, and plans among the STEM leaders of tomorrow.
