Quantum Robotics – the robotics team of the International Computer Science High School Bucharest (ICHB) is the most awarded team at Canada’s national robotics competition, FIRST Tech Challenge „Canada Cup”.
The contest took place online during June 5-12, with the best 30 robotics teams from Canada, U.S., Romania and Germany competing.
The Quantum Robotics team won the following prizes: First place in the robots ranking-for the best score obtained within field games; Second place Inspire-for the arrangement in designing and building the robot; First place Motivate granted to the team representing the essence of the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) competition for the professionalism and enthusiasm in making a collective effort to advertise the robotics all through the community.
The Quantum Robotics team was set up in 2017 by a group of students, winners of Olympic competitions in various subjects: computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, robotics.
“First Tech Challenge” is known as the most important programme of STEM multidisciplinary involvement (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) worldwide, with the purpose of providing high school students the possibility of applying integrate concepts to solve complex problems, but also of developing tea work abilities, as well as the desire to help others by mentorship and volunteering activities.
The ICHB robotics team is operating in the robotics laboratory of the high school, and is coordinated by two mentor teachers and two assistants, graduates or former members of the team, who are now university students.
