U-Tech School are 2017 National Robotics Competition champions

Congratulations to U-Tech School for winning the 2017 National Robotics Competition!! The competition, organized by the STEM Education Foundation Swaziland and co-sponsored by the U.S. Embassy, has introduced more than 400 young people from 48 schools across the country to real-world engineering challenges by designing, building and programming an autonomous robot to complete tasks. The Deputy Chief of Mission Michael Lombardo was encouraged to see many young girls participating in the challenge. He said one of the Embassy’s key initiatives is to promote science and engineering for young women, who are historically underrepresented in these fields across the world.
