Global Engagement

First Global Challenge

The FIRST Global Challenge invites BHS to send a team to compete in the robotics
Olympics, which takes place in a different nation each year. Themed around the most
significant challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Grand Challenges of
Engineering identified by the National Academy of Engineering, each year a different
challenge takes center stage to foster understanding and cooperation among the youth of the world as they use their abilities to solve the world’s problems. The challenges we face as a global society need to be solved, and the next generation can meet the task together. Mentors are from the BHS IT Department and the Team Manager is the Principal.
