An international robotics competition in Washington attracted teams of teenagers from more than 150 nations. The team that drew the most attention at the FIRST Global Challenge, which ended, was a squad of girls from Afghanistan who were twice rejected for US visas before President Donald Trump intervened. Teams left with gold, silver and bronze medals in a variety of categories. The Europe team won a gold award for picking up the highest cumulative points over the course of the competition. Poland got silver and Armenia bronze. Finland won a gold award for earning the best win-loss record. Silver went to Singapore and bronze to India.
