Our non-profit was founded in May 2017. Its first goal was our participation in the First Global Challenge 2017 in Washington D.C.
After three months spent building, training and communicating, we finally met the 156 attending countries. Unfortunately, bad alliances and poor robot efficiency led us to a disappointing ranking. Nevertheless, our well documented blog made us come back with the silver medal of the Sofia Kovalevskaya award.
We participated in two competitions : - The trophées de robotique - First the regional contest. We ranked second and thus were qualified for the national level. - Then the national contest, during two days in Saint-Quentin. We ended 20th out of 62 teams. - The 18th World Adolescent Robot Contest in the FGC category.
This contest took place in Guyiang, China. Thirty teams were attending : 15 chinese teams and 15 international ones.
We won two awards: - The international unity award for the help we provided to other teams and our involvement in communication. - The winning alliance award because we won this championship.
Our non-profit evolves. We have new team members to participate in contest and, moreover, we begin an education component by animating a weekly robotic worshop for children in the social center Condorcet.
Of course a very disturbed season. Our weekly robotic worshop for children in the social center Condorcet went on until lockdown. We also manage to run two micro-bits workshops in the library. About the robotics contest, after being involved in the trophées then in the coupe de France they were both cancelled/re-scheduled.
