FIRST Global Challenge

El FIRST Global Challenge invites each country to send a team to compete in our robotics olympics, which takes place in a different nation each year. Themed around the greatest challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Grand Challenges of Engineering identified by National Academy of Engineering, each year a different challenge takes center stage in an effort to foster understanding and cooperation among the youth of the world as they use their abilities to solve the world’s problems. The challenges we face as a global society need to be solved, and the next generation can meet the task — together. To learn more about past years, visita nuestros archivos.
