ETH Zurich is committed to getting children interested in science and technology. For example, students from ETH Zurich and PHGR (University of Teacher Education Graubünden) jointly trained children for the robotics competition entitled “First Lego League”. Two teams made it to the finals, one of which was received by ETH Rector Sarah Springman for a visit.
The “i-Girls” were one of two teams that prevailed in the regional finals of the international robotics competition “First Lego League” in Chur.
The pupils were coached by ETH Zurich in cooperation with the PHGR. It is an example of how ETH Zurich is committed to promoting STEM subjects (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology) in elementary and secondary schools.
