World Robot Olympiad aims to bring together young people all over the world to develop their creativity and problem solving skills. We do that by organizing challenging and educational robotics competitions.

Objectives

World Robot Olympiad is dedicated to:

  • Offer young people the opportunity to expand their horizons through exploration of robots and robotic systems.
  • Widen the view of young people and encourage them to be our future scientists, engineers, makers and inventors.
  •  Help young people acquire 21st-century skills like creative thinking, cooperation and communication.
  •  Help introduce the concept of modern science into educational activities.
  •  Promote robotics in STEM education worldwide.
  •  Bring together young people from all over the world to measure their skills and have fun at our annual international final.

WRO Competition

There are 4 categories with different age groups
Teams can participate in four different categories 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.

For the UK in 2019, only the regular category will be available.
