In the first Technical Challenge of Minds Inspired robotics , themed “Rover Ruckus”, nine teams from local high schools across Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac have been working to develop prototypes of their robots to compete in various challenges.
The mission of Minds Inspired is to provide young people in the Cayman Islands with unique learning experiences, particularly in the STEM field. Minds Inspired also aims to prepare the next generation to fill the jobs of the future.
This first technical challenge will be a pre-qualifier for nomination to the National Robotics Team that will represent the Cayman Islands at the first global challenge in Dubai later this year.
Selection for the national team will be open to all participating students and will be based on nominations from the supervising teachers and team members.
