“The first place in the WRO soccer football category was obtained by the Campeche team, the goal of the category is to play a match, two against two (robots). These robots must meet certain specifications such as measurements and weight and once the robots are built, they must play a soccer match, and the one that scores the most goals wins, “said Javier Delgado Moreno, director of the Robotics Center. from the Technological University of Campeche.

The team integrated by André Almazán Herrera, Oscar Martínez León and Jesús Pereyra de los Reyes will represent Mexico in the “World Robot Olympiad” next November and will face teams of more than 2,500 students from 60 countries around the world.
