Mexican students win Robot "supercup"

May 4, 2015

Mexico was dominant this week at the international RobotChallenge in Vienna, winning four gold, four silver and one bronze in all competitions. Italy came second with two gold and Russia third. There were 101 robots, and 21 teams competing in this year's edition of the competition, which was first held in 2004. Unlike the robots here at The Imagination Room, these robots were built from scratch by the competitors themselves. One of the gold medallists, in the Sumo Bot category, was about the size of a matchbox. The win makes a nice change from all the bad news coming out of Mexico, and an encouraging reminder that creativity can flourish anywhere.

Hello. I'm a journalist, radio producer and teacher. I've worked in Latin America and the Caribbean for most of my career. My work has taken me across a minefield, into a gunfight, paddling a dugout canoe and inside the homes of many brave and generous people. I have also produced several major international reporting projects where a large part of my job was recruiting and mentoring local reporters. I love teaching, and besides journalism, I have taught soccer, robotics, anthropology and English.
