Qualifying round at TelecoVigo

In this first edition of 2023, we received 256 registrations from secondary school (ESO), high school (Bachillerato), and vocational training (FP) students, which accounted for 39% of the total number of students nationwide (from the 20 participating schools). The work began with two training sessions. The first session took place on March 7th, both in-person and online, at the EET. The second session was held on April 26th, in an online format, to address any questions or doubts. You can find more information about the first training session in this link and in this article from Faro de Vigo.

Finally, on May 26th, we had the team competition event for the ESO and FP categories, held in person at the EET. A total of 11 ESO teams and 6 FP teams were selected from their respective institutions to compete in this event.
