The FIRST robotics competition is one of the biggest robotics games worldwide. About 600 teams from countries such as the U.S., Canada, Israel, China, and Turkey will join the program this year, according to a news release on the First Tech Challenge?s website.
17-year-old Zhu Jiading, from Nanjing Foreign Language School, helped his team win the place in next month?s robotics championship.
?I?ve learned how to design, build, and program a robot as well as teamwork, and I?m very excited that we won,? Zhu said.
The top teams from Chinese high schools this year will be heading to St. Louis, Missouri to compete with their peers from around the world.
Organizers from the First Tech Challenge say they hope to foster student interest and involvement in science, technology, engineering and math through the program.: You are not allowed to view links.
