FIRST Global Challenge (FGC)

Lomba Robot Internasional FGC bukan sekedar lomba tetapi tentang pembelajaran. Proyek FGC adalah proses pembelajaran dengan menggunakan pembuatan robot sebagai sarana pembelajaran. Siswa belajar lebih dari sekedar robot

FIRST Global is a US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity established by the founder of FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), Dean Kamen. Their MISSION is to inspire leadership and innovation in youth from all nations by empowering them through education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — also known as STEM.

By nurturing cross-cultural communication and cooperation among high-school students around the world through STEM, we empower them to collectively tackle the world’s most pressing challenges and come up with solutions that improve quality of life for all. The FIRST Global Challenge is our mechanism for doing so. By bringing these future STEM leaders together in an engaging and collaborative competition that drives home the importance, excitement, and applicability of STEM education, FIRST Global is using robots to build kids that have the self-confidence, skill sets, imagination, courage, and vision to do important things.

FIRST Global also strives to convince the various national governments and organizations of the world to embrace STEM education, and to support it by investing in their young adults who will soon begin to make their marks in the world.

TechnoNatura participate the FIRST Global Challenge since its inception in 2017, Our school has been making partnership with FIRST Global, The FIRST Global Challenge is an olympics-style, international robotics competition that takes place in a different country each year. Teams work together to complete tasks in a game themed around one of the greatest challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering, in an effort to foster understanding and cooperation among the youth of the world as they use their abilities to solve the world’s problems. The challenges we face as a global society need to be solved, and the next generation can meet the task — together.

Every year The FIRST Global Challenge has chosen theme that included challenges related to environmental sustainability and energy conservation.

2017 FIRST Global Challenge, the theme was “ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER” The world's water supplies are facing new threats; affordable, advanced technologies could make a difference for millions of people around the worldThe 2018 FIRST Global Challenge was held in Mexico City.

XPRIZE, Innovator Award, New Technology Experience:  Carbon Countermeasures. FGC, GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, 2022

In 2022, the challenge include The New Technology Experience (NTE). Presented in partnership with XPRIZE, in this component of the season created their own solutions to combat climate change and ensure the safety of our planet through the future.

TechnoNatura as a Indonesian Team Representative proposed a solution of the “Vegetative Propagation Of Dryobalanops Aromatica/Sumatran Camphor Tree Through Stem Cutting and Tissue Culture Cloning for Forestation of Sumatra and Kalimantan”. Fostering Carbon Emissions Reduction, Conserving Endangered Species Trees, Building Long-Term Local Economy and Improving Socioeconomic Development and Livelihoods for Indonesians”.

In doing the FGC-XPRIZE project , we made collaboration with university of IPB department of Silvi culture and we are also made partnership with Bogor PUSTARHUT Center for Standardisation of Sustainable Forest Management Instruments, where we get all the Dryobalanops Aromatica Specimen for our work in Stem Cutting and Tissue Culture Cloning

The team was awarded with Silver medal of XPrize for this proposal.
