Zimbabwe Robotics team

The Zimbabwe Robotics Team is currently comprised of students from the following schools; Harare High, Tynwald High, St Ignatius, and St George’s. A group of five students attended the inaugural FIRST Global Robotics competition in Washington DC (July 2017), and it ranked 17th out of 163 countries (defeating US and Russia) and 3rd amongst African nations. FIRST Global organizes an annual international robotics challenge to ignite a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) among more than two billion students across the world. The Zimbabwe team works with Impact Hub Harare which provides training, mentorship and other resources essential for success at both the local and international stage. The training that students go through contributes towards shaping tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and innovators to be practical problem solvers. Currently, we’re raising funds for the students to be able to compete at this year’s competition held in Mexico City this August.
