09 Aug Robotic Global Olympics for high schoolers
From Aug. 15-18, 2018 some high students from around the globe representing more than 100 countries will be competing against their peers at the First Global Challenge. The theme of the Robotics Olympics is “Energy” and the Olympics will have these students engaged in various demonstrations and displays in robotic forms using the sciences.
Each team representing its own country will display different methods on how to conserve energy and how to help propel scientific concepts that are substantial and resourceful on the conservation of energy.
The International Robotic Challenge aims also to ignite more passion and interest for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) from the students and for these youths to explore scientific concepts which are attainable for development.
President of the Union of Jamaica Alumni Associations (UJAA) and Adjunct Professor at University College of Maryland, Lesleyann Samuel, herself an engineer, said “the challenge will encourage the young people to see these scientific concepts as being different from the norm and also realize that mathematics is not boring.”
