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 youth across the world.

Teams from 163 countries competed in the event.

 In this year’s challenge, competitors were asked to design their robot to complete a variety of engineering tasks focused on “access to clean water,” and best cooperate in international robot alliances that have a variety of skills to accomplish these tasks because allianced that cooperate the best will be most prepared to succeed.

Armenia’s team was represented by students from the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies.
