An Israeli high school team from Binyamina, near Haifa, came in second place at the prestigious international FIRST Robotics Competition in St. Louis, Mo.
The final match—between the Orbit team of students from Binyamina’s Rothschild-Hashomron High School and an American team—ended in a 2:2 draw, but the defending American champion won due to a technicality.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) brings together more than 20,000 students from 24 countries for a sports-like tournament in which they pit their robots against one another in completing set tasks. The competition aims to turn students into the next generation of trailblazers, honing their technological and engineering skills while encouraging innovation and leadership.
