Roboticist offers the trendiest and most relevant educational robotics programmes with the aim of creating platforms to enhance young people’s creative and innovative talents.
FIRST Global organizes a yearly international robotics challenge to ignite a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) among the more than two billion youths across the world. The not-for-profit public charity provides the framework for an “olympics”-style robotics challenge where one team from every nation is invited to participate in a global robotics event that builds bridges between high school students with different backgrounds, languages, religions, and customs
VEX Robotics Competition Turning Point is played on a 12’x12’ square field configured as seen above. Two (2) Alliances – one (1) “red” and one (1) “blue” – composed of two (2) Teams each, compete in matches consisting of a fifteen (15) second Autonomous Period, followed by a one minute and forty-five second (1:45) Driver Controlled Period.
VEX IQ Challenge Next Level is played on a 4’x8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be autonomous with limited human interaction.
2018 FIRST Global Challenge Event : Energy Impact
The theme of the 2018 FIRST Global Challenge was “Energy Impact”. In mid-August, youth from all around the world gathered at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City for the second iteration of the international event. From commonly used fossil fuels to environmentally-friendly resources like solar and wind, energy is a tool that powers the different parts of our world one way or another. The 2018 FIRST Global Challenge explored the impact of the different types of energy we use and how we can make them more sustainable.
2017 FIRST Global Challenge Event : H2O Flow
The 2017 FIRST Global Challenge centered around the theme of providing access to clean water. In mid-July, 163 teams from 157 nations gathered together at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. to not only share in their love of STEM through Coopertition®, but to also meet and learn from youth around the globe as they move forward to being changemakers in their communities.
