Hundreds of thousands of students fought for a chance to compete at the Imagine Cup World Finals which ended in July 2016 in Seattle, USA. As an exclusive partner in robotics, Makeblock partook in the entire Imagine Robo World Cup Hackathon session at the Imagine Cup Finals, together with a legion of wise young people around the world vying for a creative robotics contest called Imagine Robo World Cup Hackathon (Robo-Hack). Microsoft’s Imagine Cup is the world’s largest, most prestigious student technology competition and has the purpose of encouraging students to give free rein to their imagination and show their innovative ability, addressing the most difficult global issues through technology and making their creative ideas a business reality. Since the launch of Microsoft Imagine Cup in 2003, more than 1.65 million students from over 190 countries and regions have participated in the event.
