Students from CETMAR 36 participated in a robotics tournament and passed to the national tournament! The six students will be flying to Mexico City to compete with teams from all over the country.

Last week, Abrahan, Edgar, Anthony, Enrique, Jorge and Javier participated at WER Educational Robotics Tournament in Prepa TEC.

Abrahan, Edgar and Antony, fifth semester students in CETMAR 36 belong to the team PDC Robotics, while Enrique, Jorge and Javier, third semester students, belong to RAM Tec team.

KKIS scholars on each team!

We’re really excited to see how Jorge and Anthony, two of our scholars, are taking part in this competition.

“This gave me a new view on robotics. As a KKIS scholar I felt extremely happy for your support given through Facebook and all the content shared on the school’s platforms. I’m really excited to know that we can make it to Shanghai… that we can be in Shanghai this year, or next one…”, Jorge.

What is WER?

The challenges, goals and dynamics of WER tournament promote cognitive and socio-emotional development in the participants.
