The Roots Millennium Education student shave clinched first position in Roborace NASCON 2019 at the FAST National University, according to a press release issued by the organisation.

The students participated in the RoboRace Robotics category based on the autonomous robot programming at NASCON 2019. The Millennium team from Roots Millennium Wahid Campus Islamabad comprised Jaisha Maroof, Maham Akmal, Sameer Khan, Haider Shah and Abdullah Umer. More than 15 teams from different schools and universities participated in the competition.

The Millennium students made it to the finals after giving a tough competition to all the opponent teams from different schools and universities. The final round was played against Capital University of Science and Technology where the team from Roots Millennium Wahid Campus clinched first position in the RoboRace and was awarded cash prizes.

The Roots Millennium encourages young learners to begin uncovering the world of robotics through basic activities and programming solutions available through their robotics construction equipment. Advanced high-school students are exposed to programs that help them understand their machines and robots through a software providing in-depth programming capabilities. While exploring pulleys, gears, reels, hooks, and simple construction, students develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills along with advancing their creative, social and expressive skills.

The students who are found doing well are given the opportunity to participate in the First Lego League National Competition and National Engineering Robotics Contest organised by the NUST every year.

The grand annual event of FAST National University, NASCON 19, started last week at University Campus Islamabad. The three-day event featured more than 50 interactive sessions with a variety of activities and contests such as robotics, scientific projects, competitions, debates, sports and musical competitions. Students from different universities and colleges participated in different individual and team-based activities. Renowned educationist Master Ayub was the chief guest on the occasion, accompanied by NUCES Rector Dr Ayub Alvi, Campus Director Dr Waseem Ikraam, and NASCON Convener Assistant Professor Usman Chaudhary, faculty members, staff and a large number of students.
