THE Team Nexus of Living Stone International School from Angeles City bagged fourth place in the recent World Robot Olympiad Friendship Invitational (WROFIT) 2019 in Denmark.

Members of Team Nexus: Krischell Anne Faust, Amelia Fernandez, and Paolo Palanisamy are the representatives of the Philippine Robotics National Team for Smart Cities Junior High Open Category.

The team presented their project “City Urban Discoveries and Development” or Ciudad, which aims to provide solutions to every city’s obstacles such as air and water pollution, as well as renewable energy.

Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr., commended the team, as well as the school, for bridging the students in world technology.

Moreover, he vowed to assist them in redeveloping the project.

“This project is good. It will surely help the community if will be redeveloped. These students are the key to the country’s betterment,” the mayor added.

Meanwhile, according to Nike Cunanan, Nexus Coach, the inspiration behind the project was the earthquake which hit Pampanga last April.
