Mexico has its share of clever kids, just like its developed northern neighbors. Probably every big population has similar portions of intelligent members. Recently, Mexican students reached these heights.

The FIRST Global Challenge, a new robotics competition, had its premier in Washington DC. More than 160 teams competed to solve:

Mexican Student Win Trip to Swiss Youth Summit
Eric Daniel Ortega Flores is in Switzerland to discuss ideas to change the world. A Swiss non-governmental organization headquartered in Zürich, Global Changemakers, invited him. They chose 60 students from around the world to attend the Global Youth Summit 2017.
The summit is the organization’s flagship event. During the week, 60 new Changemakers–aged between 18 and 23–collaborate. The topics that their different workgroups focus on are:
* climate change,
* corruption, and
* empowerment of women.
Participants will come away with having learned skill-building and networking. Global Changemakers will select thirty projects to finance and launche.
While a teacher in Mexico, I was struck by how this society respects learning, teaching, and mental excellence. Especially relevant to us, this cultural context helps students of medicine excel. And they do. All the doctors, dentists, and surgeons that we DocTours have vetted are accredited. Plus they keep abreast of progress, author papers, and attend professional conferences. Hence, to utilize these world-class caregivers, save money, and take a vacation, contact DocTours to arrange your visit to Mexico.
