TWENTY-FOUR students from Israel are in Cebu to participate in the First Lego League (FLL) Trash Trek Challenge from June 1 to 4 in Lapu-Lapu City.

The students from Rabin Elementary School and Ish Shalom School are here to show their robotics skills, and bring the spirit of creativity and innovation that makes Israel the Startup Nation.

The FLL Philippine Islands Invitational 2016 Robotics Olympiad aims to inspire future scientists and engineers by designing and building an autonomous robot that can resolve environment-related problems.

The 50 first-time Israeli visitors to the Philippines are composed of students and their mentors and school officials.

Deputy Chief of Mission Hadass Nisan said the participation of the Israeli students in the robotics competition is an opportunity for Israel and the Philippines to further strengthen their cooperation in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Israel has the highest number of start-ups in IT after SiliconValley. It is renowned globally as the “Startup Nation.”

Trailblazing startups, from Waze and Wix to PrimeSense and Mobileye, have helped Israel gain its reputation as an international hub of entrepreneurship and hi-tech ingenuity.

More than 270 multinational corporations have established more than 320 advanced research and development (R&D) facilities throughout Israel, making Israel an “R&D Lab” for the world’s leading tech firms. These include Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Intel, Yahoo!, Motorola, HP, Siemens, GE, GM, IBM and Cisco, among others.
