Fifteen teams representing schools, community clubs and religious organizations in regions 3, 4, 6, 7 and 10 are participating in Guyana’s first Nationwide Robot and Coding technology competition. This first program of its kind in Guyana, serves as a pilot to gauge the interest of participants and to help organizers work out potential issues associated with automating and organizing a nationwide competition among teams so widely dispersed in Guyana.

Organizer Karen Abrams stated that, “students will learn critical soft skills like collaboration, communication and conflict resolution while strengthening their academic knowledge, critical thinking, problem solving and technical skills. There is simply no downside to youth participation in this exciting new competition” Abrams noted that, “the pilot league was launched to expose and engage our young people in STEM related activities and then careers. What we have found is that, the more engaged they are, the more they learn, the more they are able to grasp pretty complicated concepts. We are preparing them for future which is unknown but which we bet will be kinder to those young people who are comfortable with the backend of technology”
