There is no more appropriate place for this year's FIRST Global Challenge than Geneva, the "Capital of Peace" where nations come together to solve diplomatic challenges and where scientific innovation flourishes.
The official theme has yet to be announced.
The FIRST Global Challenge is an international Olympic-style robotics competition that takes place in a different country each year.
PRIMO Global invites each nation to send a team to build and program a robot to compete.
Teams work together to complete tasks in a themed game around one of the greatest challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Great Engineering Challenges, in an effort to foster understanding and cooperation among young people.

With a mission to inspire leadership and innovation among the world's nearly 2 billion young people through the sport of robotics, FIRST Global believes it is through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that the next generation of the world can work together to create a better world for all of us.
