Some fifteen Panamanian students, who left today for the World Robotics Olympiad to be held in Thailand, will present various proposals focused on food, processes to grow and distribute it, one of the representatives of the delegation said today.
The competition, which will be held from November 16 to 18 in the city of Chiang Mai (north), will bring selected teams from around the world to develop solutions to this year's central theme "Food Matters".
The director of the National Foundation for the Development of Steam (FUNDESTEAM), Marvin Castillo, told reporters that there is much optimism on the part of the students who will represent Panama in this robotics scientific fair in the Asian country.
"These youths are already winners, they managed to win in a tough national competition, I'm sure we will continue climbing new steps in these robotic Olympics as we have done in the last 4 years," said Castillo.
In the Olympiad, competitors will have to expose different robotics projects, in addition to proposing solutions to issues such as food shortages, production, distribution and the fight against malnutrition framed in objective number 2 of the Objectives of Sustainable Development.
