Team Mali has won silver at the international FIRST Global Competition in Washington, DC.
Team Mali took the siver medal "Zhang Heng Award for Engineering Design, awarded to teams whose robot exhibits excellent engineering and displays elegance and effectiveness during the Challenge". We captured this prize by winning against the competition consisting of 163 teams from 157 countries, including all of the most technologically advanced countries in the world.
We have shown the world that "the youth of Mali has talent". It is an extraordinary achievement for our children. We are very, very proud ... of our students as well as of ourselves and the entire iNERDE community for all the work that we did to train, support, and encourage the team.
Our heros will return to Mali with their medals on the 21st. We are organizing a big celebration, as their success merits. Stay tuned for the next iNERDE News Flash for the details.
