We are a group of 5 students attending MCAST currently studying Software Development and Robotics. We were chosen to represent Malta in the First Global ( https://first.global/fgc/game/ ) robotics competition which will be held this October in Dubai. The aim of the competition is to bring attention to the ocean pollution which is a critical issue.
In general, the teams have to build a robot that is able to collect waste (signified by balls of various sizes) and place them in specific barges. Once the teams complete this task, they have to dock their robot either by partially docking on the barge, by fully docking on the barge or by hanging the robot on the barge.
The team is fascinated that with their combined knowledge they are able to build a fully functional robot especially since most of them have been studying robotics and programming since the age of 13. Apart from the technical aspect of the competition it also targets contemporary issues in today's world such as ocean pollution.
In order to attend, we need to collect €10,000. To date, thanks to our sponsors, we have collected €3,500. We created this campaign as we need your help to collect the remaining €6,500. Collecting this amount would make our dream a reality! Every donation amount counts and is greatly appreciated.
We thank you for your support!
