Three Mathayom 1 students at Wattanothaipayap School in Chiang Mai have won the World Robot Olympiad Thailand junior championship and are ready to represent the country at the international level at a competition in Costa Rica in November. 



But they need money to get there.

School director Thitinat Sakthananon is hoping donations to cover their travel expenses will come from citizens or the private sector. He’s waiting for calls at (089) 949 8291.

Thitinat made the appeal on Tuesday afternoon as he congratulated Chayanon Wattanakeebut, 13, and Putthipong Hanpa and Natcha Khampoung, both 12.

Their supervising teachers are Chawanlak Taphai and Sutthiporn Sutthi.
