Robotics Competition in Romania

Newsroom 01/04/2011 | 17:55

The tech competition will take place on April 2 at the American International School of Bucharest, bringing together four FTC teams representing top international schools from Eastern Europe, including the American International School of Bucharest; the Anglo-American School of Sofia; the American International School of Zagreb; and the American School of Warsaw. The Product Development Company is collaborating with FIRST® and the American International School of Bucharest for the FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC®) competition in Bucharest.

FIRST Tech Challenge is a mid-level robotics competition designed for high school-students who want a hands-on learning experience to develop and hone their skills and abilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

According to John D. Stuart, Senior VP, Global Education, and PTC Romania Country Manager, “The FIRST Tech Challenge program for high schools is one of the best programs in the world for developing the scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians of the future. We are grateful to FIRST and the American International School of Bucharest for collaborating with PTC to bring this program to Eastern Europe. The long-term effect will be an expansion of this program across Romania and all of Eastrn Europe thanks to their leadership.”

This year’s FTC game, GET OVER IT!™, is a sports-type competition involving rolling goals, mountain-like obstacles, balancing and sensors.  In addition to scoring points, winners must demonstrate critical thinking, strategy, and oral and written communication skills, as well as the ability to work as part of a community.
