ASTANA. KAZINFORM Central Asian Games will be held between February 24 and 26 with the support of the Kazakh Enlightenment Ministry and USTEM Robotics public fund at the Al Farabi Palace of Schoolchildren. The winners will defend the country’s colors at the FIRST 2023 World Robotics Championships in Houston, the U.S., Kazinform quotes the Ministry’s press service.
The championships will offer competitions in three age categories: the FIRST LEGO League Explore for children aged 6-10 years old, the FIRST LEGO League Challenge for ages ranging from 10 to 16, and the FIRST Tech Challenge for 12-18 years old.
