Mauritius prepares for 2022 FIRST Global Challenge in Geneva

Mauritius is getting ready to participate in the 2022 FIRST Global Challenge in Geneva this October. Team Mauritius is being prepared for Robotics Assembling, Robotics Programming and Robotics Strategy by YUVA’s speciality school, YUVA Academy.

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 program a robot to compete. 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.
