By Alan Ostrow – Mentor to Team Honduras
The 3rd Annual FirstGlobal International Robotics Competition just concluded its Dubai competition. I am pleased to share the following:
- Team Honduras’ final rank was 15th out of 190 teams in the world.
- We were the #1 team in all of the Americas (from Alaska to Argentina).
- We won a Silver Medal for the Non-Technical Judges Award. There was no explanation given, but experience tells me that the Judges found Honduras to be a role model team.
- We made it to the Semi-finals which means we were one of only 4 alliances left in the world to make it that far.
- Our final record was 7 wins and 2 losses.
Team Honduras has competed in this International FirstGlobal Robotics competition for 3 years. Overall, the Team has a record of 16 wins and 7 losses — which I am sure, places them in an elite class of teams.
