Costa Rica News – Tico twins are going to shine in the Robotics World Olympiad. This global event will gather 2,500 students from 66 countries in Costa Rica, starting today through Sunday November 12th, at the Coca-Cola Amphitheater, in Parque Viva.
Gabriel and Carlos Badilla Navarro, age 12, are one of 16 Costa Rican national teams.
They are adorable in that when one starts to speak the other ends his sentence. They claim to think the same.
Their mission will not be simple. They must build a robot that can detect the presence of animals and move blocks representing scientists and tourists. The challenge seeks to highlight the country’s sustainable tourism.
They’ll also have to do an exercise they haven’t practiced to showcase their ability to build and program.
All the work they have put in will surely pay off. Gabriel has a passion for disarming and assembling, while Carlos prefers programming and giving orders to the robot.
