Zim Robotics Team’s Top-notch Italian Performance Praised – Mavetera

Information and Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Minister, Dr Tatenda Mavetera, has praised Zimbabwean girls for displaying an excellent attitude towards sciences through embracing coding and robotics which used to be a preserve of male dominance in yesteryears.This follows the team’s top-drawer performance which raised the Zimbabwe flag high, whilst giving a splendid performance in Italy.

“We are very happy that as a country we have girls in coding and robotics and we are pleased with the recent participation of our team in the Italian challenge, we recently visited Tynwald High School together with the Speaker of Parliament Advocate Jacob Mudenda and we got stunned by the milestone achievements the school is taking in technology and modernisation which is in line with Vision 2030.

“The excelling of the team comes at a time when we are celebrating Women’s Month, so we must embrace and appreciate the girls participating in ICTs, as a government we are pushing to have robotics aligned with the education curriculum through the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education so that we have many learners partaking this discipline, therefore we will keep creating an enabling environment for girls and young learners in coding and robotics,” said Dr Mavetera

Minister Mavetera said government will continue to celebrate the achievements of girls participating in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, including the creation of an enabling environment for more girls to be enrolled in this discipline.

The girls robotics team represented Zimbabwe, at the First Tech robotics challenge held in Milan, Italy, from 6 to 12 March, where a joint team of nine boys and eight girls from Tynwald High School and Milestone College of Rusape scooped a top award.
