Supporting the Republic of Moldova team at the FIRST Global Challenge 2017 robotics competition

On July 16, Counselor of the Embassy of Republic of Moldova to the United States of America, Liliana Gutan, attended the opening ceremony of the FIRST Global Challenge, a robotics competition with teams from 163 countries that hopes to ignite a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) among the more than two billion youth across the world.

The Republic of Moldova was represented by a talented team that arrived to Washington, DC with the robot they built themselves. They will use this robot to compete with the other 162 countries’ teams on the 17th and 18th of July.

Team mentor, Florin Cazac, said he believes that the team is well prepared and excited to present their work on the competition’s arena. The student participants confirmed this and mentioned that they had already made friends from around the world in the first day of competition.

The Embassy of Moldova wishes good luck to the participants representing our country in this first-of-its-kind competition. The final results will be announced on July 18 during the awards ceremony.
