To participate in FGC 2023, the Vietnamese team was selected from the Vietnam Robotics Challenge. This is a robot manufacturing competition organized by FPT Group and Maker Viet Company for high school students nationwide with the participation of more than 66 schools nationwide. In addition, 9 members of the team are also selected through interviews and training rounds, and only 5 members can compete in Singapore.

Hanoi - Amsterdam High School for the Gifted contributed to the FGC 2023 team competing in Singapore with two excellent students, Dang Nhat Trieu - class 12L1 - head of the mechanical department - designer of Robotics GART6520 club and Vu Quang Hien - class 12L1 - Co-head of the mechanical and design department of the school's Robotics GART6520 club.

With a strategic vision to develop STEM education, the school Board of Directors has created favorable conditions for the school's students to experience STEM and Robotics clubs. In the FGC 2022 competition, two students from the school were also selected to join the competition team and won Bronze Medals. In addition, the school's students also achieved many achievements in international Robot competitions such as FRC, WRO...

Mr. Do Hoang Son, a member of the Vietnam STEM Alliance commented: "This achievement is very difficult to achieve because the tournament has the participation of more than 190 countries. This is considered Vietnam's biggest STEM achievement to date. As a result, young people will contribute to improving STEM education. This also shows that the education sector needs to pay more attention and create more favorable conditions for STEM development activities in schools."

To achieve this achievement, the Vietnamese robotics team went through a thorough preparation process, with the efforts of team members and the support of scientists and experts in the field of robotics.

The team consists of nine outstanding students selected from Vietnam Robotics Challenge 2023. They come from six high schools in Hanoi, Hung Yen, and Hai Phong.

FGC 2023 took place from October 7 to 10 in Singapore with the participation of thousands of students from 191 countries and territories.

Themed “Hydrogen Horizons”, the game challenged participants to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to design and build a skilled robot from a standard kit of parts. Participating teams must navigate their robot in the simulated world to produce hydrogen and use it to store, transport, and convert energy.
