Campionati di robotica, debutto in rosa per l’Afghanistan

Si stanno tenendo in questi giorni a Washington (Usa) i primi campionati mondiali giovanili di robotica, a cui partecipano ragazzi e ragazze da oltre 150 Paesi. E per l’Afghanistan si tratta di un debutto il rosa: la squadra è infatti interamente femminile, ed è giunta negli Usa – capitanata da Lisa Azizi, nella foto mentre lavora ad una delle loro creazioni – dopo essersi vista rifiutare il visto per ben due volte in base alle nuove leggi sull’immigrazione. Qualunque sia l’esito del campionato, le ragazze possono dire di aver già vinto una sfida non da poco.
