BENEFITING: World Learning, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jul 16, 2017
The Algeria FIRST Global Challenge Robotics Team is thrilled to be participating for the very first time in a worldwide robotics competition: The FIRST Global Challenge 2017. Our team needs to raise $13,000 to cover travel expenses for 4 finalists plus a mentor to go. Additional funds may allow more students from the full team of finalists to attend.
The full team is composed of leading high school and first-year university students. Rafik, Nabil, Sarah, Cyrine, Anas, Soumeya, Yousra, and Amine hail from different neighborhoods of Algeria’s capital, Algiers. They began their robotics journey with Lego Robotics workshops at the Algiers STEAM Center and as part of a larger STEAM camp that gathered over 200 students from all corners of Algeria. These STEAM experiences inspired the team to delve into the multi-faceted world of science and technology and reinforced their core values of teamwork, curiosity and innovation.
These young learners are so excited to have the life-changing opportunity to develop their skills in engineering, programming, presentation, teamwork and leadership. They are looking forward to meeting teams from around the world, and building bridges of understanding and friendship.
Please help us raise this money to cover their travel expenses. Every gift makes a difference!
