FIRST Global, is a US based non-profit organisation, that got global media attention for organising the world’s first international robot Olympics for high school students this July in Washington, D.C. The event was attended by participants from 163 nations, including teams from almost every nation in Asia. The participants from Bangladesh Sujoy Mahmud of Mangrove School, Azman Islam and Adrian Dip Mohanta from HURDCO International School, Shah Saqeef Imam from Australian International School, Laleh-naz Bergman Hossain from Sunbeams School and the skipper of the team was Labib Tazwar Rahman of Academia School Dhaka. Mentor to the team was Mohammed Shams Jabber the Founder of The Tech Academy assisted by Shamsul Arefin Erfan.
The objective in the competition was to build a robot that can collect water and contaminant elements, differentiate between the two elements using an algorithm, and dispose them at separate places. In addition to that, there were bonus points if a robot could lift itself from the ground.
The competition consisted of 6 rounds and Bangladesh kicked off their journey with their name on the top of the scoreboard.
At the end of the 6th round, Bangladesh ranked 80th amongst the 163 participants.
However, it was the most intense and exciting competition for the team and no matter what our position was at the end of the competition, it was an eye opening experience for the Bangladeshi Robot team.
Congratulations for Team Bangladesh! Congratulations for Azman and Adrian!
