Translated from Spanish.
The event, which will bring together 160 countries to participate in the first robotic world olympic called First Global Challenge in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Constitution Hall, Washington D.C., will be held from July 16 to 18.
This year’s “H2O FLOW” robotics challenge reflects how necessary it is to cooperate as a global society and resolve the water crisis, which makes it necessary to work as a team to provide access to clean water, making it one of the 14 “Big Challenges for Engineering “, according to the organizing institution itself.
“We were in the class when the coordinator came and told us about the global robot competition, after that we talked to our parents, and we agreed to work on this project.
They invited the students of the polytechnic and the students of Los Laureles because the competition is 15 to 18 years, “said one of the students, Alejandro Molinas.
“It takes a lot of teamwork and engineering work, because more than just logic and programming, engineering is much more important than what they are going to evaluate, and above all, making alliances between countries so that problems can be solved “Confirmed the other member of the team of five, Maximiliano Vuyk.
“On the court they give you a railing where the robot has to climb, which is the maximum score you can achieve in the competition.”
