Let’s Welcome Team Ukraine to Washington, D.C.! There are three Ukrainian students and their adult mentor coming to D.C. to participatein the inaugural International Robot Olympics. These students have spent the last few months learningabout programming and engineeringwith the goal of building a robotthat will compete in the FIRST Global Challenge 2017. Over 160 nations, each sending one team, will be participating this year, and we are very excited to have Ukraine in attendance.
We want to make this a special event for Team Ukraine, and that starts with getting thecommunity involved. We invite youto attend our opening ceremony onJuly 16 to come out and cheer them on! The team will take the stageduring the opening procession proudly waving the Ukrainian flag, and it would be incredible for thesekids to see a crowd of Ukrainian-Americans waving a flag back at them.
Bring the family, make signs, and above all be ready to cheer on Team Ukraine. Please RSVP here so we can get a general sense of numbers, but of course, day-of arrivals are welcome as well. We hope to see you there!
