Robotics Team Mauritius for 2022 FIRST Global Challenge

Mauritius adopts “Carbon Capture” as 2022 FIRST Global Challenge Theme

YUVA Academy is excited to announce that its Robotics Team Mauritius has adopted “Carbon Capture” as the 2022 FIRST Global Challenge theme.

With CO2 levels continuing to rise around the globe, now is the time to reimagine the future of our climate and innovate solutions that nurture a healthier planet for us all.

The FIRST Global Challenge is an Olympics-style, international robotics competition that takes place in a different country each year.

FIRST Global invites each nation to send a team to build and programme a robot to compete. In Mauritius, YUVA is the exclusive partner of FIRST Global to select, form and prepare robotics teams, comprising young secondary school students of 14-18 years old.

Teams work together to complete tasks in a game themed around one of the greatest challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering, in an effort to foster understanding and cooperation among the youth of the world as they use their abilities to solve the world’s problems.

The challenges we face as a global society need to be solved, and the next generation can meet the task — together.
