Congratulations to Zimbabwe’s Robotics team representatives for winning their initial first 2 games at the International Robotics competition for High Schools in Mexico City, Mexico
What an incredible day in the Arena competing in the Robotic Olympics with just under 200 countries from across the globe. The presideng of Mexico opened the event officially today and was joined by the likes of Will.I.Am from Black eyed peas, the diplomatic corps and the board and founders of First Global. Our team did well today, winning our first round. Zimbabwe is there with the best of them in this STEM world cup!
In this category we came 3rd–The Courageous Achievement Award. We are estatic! Science and technology can change lives and Zimbabwean students are at par with the best of them. #Robotics is a test of the mind and holds the solutions to many issues we face as a community. These STEM pioneers have worked tirelessly for months at Impact Hub Harare, stretching their minds and creativity, learning to code, design and build for this global platform. Although our nation be but little, all though our students be but little (to borrow Shakespeare’s words) we are fierce!
