Planck team confirms itself among the top robotics teams in Italy. The First Lego League and FTC team of students from the Max Planck Institute of Lancenigo (province of Treviso) won the podium last weekend in the national ‘First Lego League Challenge’ competition held in Salerno.

And now it is the Italian team that will be present at the WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Insitute) First Open Event, a world competition dedicated to robotics that will be held in Worcester, Massachusetts (United States) from 7 to 9 June 2024.

A new success therefore for the boys and girls of the Itis and Liceo delle scienze applicate Max Planck, adding to the many national and international successes of the last three years.

In 2022 the team, again led by coach Professor Monica Disarò, was national First Lego League champion and then entered the world topten in Houston 2022.

Last year it won first place in the national final of the First Tech Challenge Scrimmage 2023 (a new competition dedicated to ‘metal’ robotics associated with the better-known First Lego League) and then participated in the world competition held in Singapore last October.

Now comes the success obtained in Campania, where Planck team has landed after passing the regional selection with the best score of the entire competition.

The competition in Salerno, which was divided into four parts, saw the Planck Team place in the top ten of the robotics matches, and achieve high scores with the innovative project ‘Space4Art’ and in the group work ‘Core Values’. The project, presented to the jury, consists of an application capable of engaging and disseminating the viewing of works of art of different genres to anyone, allowing users to create personalised museums by selecting works from a specific field. The aspect that won further praise from the jury and aroused the public’s curiosity was the use of a 3D viewer in the implementation.

Success was guaranteed, once again, by the compact teamwork involving 10 components between girls and boys led by coaches Professor Monica Disarò and Marco Todesco with the support of teachers Bortolini Luca, Criveller Matteo, Callegari Filippo. Here are the names: Bovo Giulio, De Santis Romeo, Energico Marzia, Falzoni Teresa, Fuser Giuseppe, Lazzarin Tommaso, Persico Alessandra, Salvadori Alessia, Scabello Simone, Silvestri Lorenzo.

At the heart of the robotics work developed in recent years are the STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics) skills that are fundamental in technology education.

Now Planck Team is looking to America, renewing the dream of an international competition at the highest level, and hopes to count on the now consolidated and vast network of collaboration with local companies and businesses. Sponsors are being sought who are ready to share in the new goals.
