One more day of competition at the inaugural FIRST Global Challenge in Washington, D.C.!
FIRST Global Challenge is the newest of Dean Kamen's competitions - it is specifically directed at international participation with one team from each country. In addition, there is one team from each continent (except Antarctica) for 6 Continental teams. The Challenge is inspired by the 14 Grand Challenges of Engineering, and this year the Challenge theme is based on providing access to clean water. There are 3 robots on each side, and the 6 robots compete on a 6 meter x 4 meter field. For more info, see their website:
