20 Jun Students from Limon will represent the country in robotics competition
Translated from Spanish.
Three teenagers from Limon will represent Costa Rica in an international robotics competition called the FIRST Global Challenge.
The competition will be held July 16-18 in Washington, United States, and will bring together 260 other teams from around the world.
Those selected are Johardy Hunter Maxwell, Daniel Castillo Acevedo, 14, and Joustin Romero Umaña, 15, who are pupils of San Marcos, Diurno de Limón and Sagrada Familia schools, respectively.
As an experiment, the three said they started robotics when they were just schoolchildren. Although they have faced economic constraints, today they refine their preparation to demonstrate to Costa Rica and the world that Limón, besides its nature, gastronomy and music, also offers talents in science and technology.
