The team seeks to win gold in South Korea, representing Peru and Latin America.
The Lambayeque COAR team was awarded by the Ministry of Production, through the National Quality Institute (INACAL), after being declared the winner of the “III National Standardization Olympics“. They will now represent Peru and Latin America in the XIII International Standardization Olympiad that takes place in August of this year in South Korea.
The proposal the students presented was a prototype of an improved city that meets the Peruvian Technical Standards (NTP) for road safety and a dissemination plan aimed at the community.
Yampier Chilcon Sabiya, Carlos Quevedo Sambrano and Nancy Paico Céspedes are the Lambayecan students that make up the Committed to Society team of COAR Lambayeque. They are hoping to win gold in the event in South Korea.
“It is a pleasant experience for us. Before, we knew nothing of Technical Norms nor of quality, but now we know that it is everywhere and in the most daily thing”, said Paico Céspedes to La República.
In Peru, the winning team faced 107 groups from 24 regions. They had received training from the Normalization Directorate of INACAL.
“In previous editions of the International Standardization Olympiad held in South Korea, the COAR Cusco team won the gold medal in 2015 and the COAR Junín won the bronze medal in 2016”, informed the aforementioned media.
