Serengeti sends young roboticists to the world championship in robotics! Christmas donation to Croatian Makers/IRIM
Maybe we have given up a big Christmas party for our business partners, but that will help young robotics enthusiasts to participate in the final tournament of the MakeX world’s robotics competition – all this at the initiative of our employees.
Proud of the ideas of our employees
The results of a recent survey on engagement and satisfaction showed what is the most important: as many as 82 % of Serengeti employees are satisfied with the balance of business and private life, and all their expectations are met. Except for one!
Our employees have told us they want our company to be more socially responsible, and 51 % of them have confirmed in the survey that they would like to encourage positive changes in society. We have decided to realize their ideas and make their wishes come true as soon as possible by making a donation.
Serengeti for young robotics enthusiasts
We have decided to donate HRK 20,000 intended for a big Christmas party to the Institute for Youth Development and Innovativeness, and the donation has been awarded to talented and hard-working primary school pupils, STEM talents and young robotics enthusiasts!
Thanks to our employees, we have supported the journey and participation of the delegation of the best Croatian young roboticists in the final tournament of the MakeX world’s robotics competition this December in China.
Supporting development and innovation
We must admit that it was not very difficult to decide to make a donation to the Institute for Youth Development and Innovativeness. From the very beginning, we support all the efforts of its founder Nenad Bakić, mostly within the Croatian Makers project, and this donation is only a small continuation of everything involved in the mission and vision of Serengeti.
We are tied to the field of robotics with some of our most complex enterprise projects on foreign markets, and the robots we program are remaining to be an example of applying top-level expertise on all continents. A donation of HRK 20,000 is a sort of “cornerstone” for the future of young roboticists, but also for the continued cooperation between IRIM and Serengeti.
Results of the competition
The team of our roboticists came back from the MakeX Robotics Competition in China and achieved excellent results. The teams from Josipovac Primary School and Robotics Club Osijek (younger age group) and Stenjevec and Josip Antun Ćolnić Primary Schools (older age group) participated in the competition with their mentors.
The team from Josip Antun Ćolnić Primary School from Đakovo, Iva Mijakić and Ana Švegli and their mentor Tomislav Milanović, won the 10th place in the world between 1,500 competing teams!
The team from Josipovac Primary School, Lucija Udovčić and Marko Prološčić and their mentor Andrijana Sili, won a special prize for the best competitive spirit!
Congratulations to our young roboticists, we wish them a lot of competitions and extraordinary results, they deserve it!
