15 Jul Rainfresh helps send young Canadians to compete in global robotics competition
This May, a group of brilliant young Canadian thinkers, known as Lego my Lego, travelled to California to compete in the annual FLL North American Open Robotics Competition. Lego my Lego was one of two teams representing Canada, and their performance was very impressive.
The team, composed of children aged 9 to 14, was awarded 2nd place for Mechanical Design; 11th in Robot Game; and finished in the top 16 for Project and Robot Design out of 78 teams.
This year, the competition’s theme was “Nature’s Fury”. The children competed to create innovative solutions that would help communities prepare for, survive, and rebuild after a variety of natural disasters. Rainfresh’s technology played an integral role in the team’s safe water supply strategy.
Rainfresh was proud to sponsor Lego my Lego by donating gravity filters and money to help equip the team with the materials they needed to compete in California.
Rainfresh’s gravity water filtration technology is a popular tool used in disaster relief initiatives across the globe. With a lightweight and easily portable design, these filters can supply safe drinking water from virtually any water source, including lakes, ponds, rivers, wells and streams – all without the use of pumps, chemicals or electricity.
