In April, Darüşşafaka Robotics Club’s students competed in the First Robotic Competition (FRC) in the USA and won the 3 EKOCYCLE™ Cube® D Printer Award. The students printed 8 different parts of the ‘Aerial Assist’ (Pilates ball thrower) robot by using the 3D Printer which is made by the students themselves. As Siemens, we supported them in both developing the robot together with our volunteering engineers and participating in the competition in the USA.
Since our country is in need of a significant breakthrough in R&D with its young and promising population, it is very meaningful for a students’ robotics club of an institution like Darüşşafaka to receive such an award. They made us very proud. Thus, I would like to congratulate all club students and mentor teachers as well as all my colleagues who voluntarily supported them. I wish them success in this year’s grand prize competition as well.
