Team Mali Proudly Showing Their Silver Medals
Dear Friends of Mali's Young Roboticists,
Although we only raised $240 in the microproject to which you donated, we started a second microproject (the one you contributed to expired a week before FIRST Global) which raised another $1300, enabling us to meet all our expenses in the United States. In addition, the government of Mali stepped in and back-funded everything iNERDE had spent during the training of our robotics teams over the last 5 months.
Team Mali won a silver medal for Engineering Design at FIRST Global! In addition to having an elegant design, the robot performed very well in all competitions, carrying several matches virtually single-handedly, earning us a great deal of respect from all the participants. We truly showed the world that Mali's youth have talent. It was an amazing event for all of Africa, with 75% of all African nations partiipating and many turning in excellent performances.
Thank you for your contribution to Mali and Africa's success at FIRST Global.
Coach, Team Mali
