World Robotic Olympiad

  • Crimson Education
  • Global
Competition

Description

At World Robotic Olympiad, it is the company's mission to give as many young people as possible the opportunity to develop their creativity and problem solving skills in a fun and engaging way. Starting in 2004, World Robot Olympiad has developed to a truly global competition, with tournaments in more than 65 countries and the WRO international final in November, which is hosted by a different country each year.

Teams can participate in four different categories (Regular, Open, Football and ARC) with different age groups. This allows the participants to develop their robotic skills from a very young age up to being a college or university student. A team consists of two or three students and is guided by a coach. Participating teams need to design, build and program a robot model that is capable to perform a challenge, play soccer or demonstrate a solution for a real-life problem.
