Students and mentors from Team 2220 as well as members from the FTC Team 7190 Green Girls met with representatives from the United National Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The goal of the conference was to establish annual meetings between the United Nations and robotics teams. We were very well received by the United Nations and look forward to working with them more in the future. We are looking to expand this event in the future.
In October 2016, students and mentors from Team 2220 traveled to Poland, where they visited five different cities (Warsaw, Lublin, Krasnik, Krakow, & Wroclaw) and Germany, where they visited Dusseldorf. This was in a continuing effort to expand FIRST and STEM education in Europe. We worked with Team 5883 Spice Gears in Krasnik.
