Calling all robot enthusiasts! An information session on the upcoming national round of the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is going to be held this Saturday, 6 April, from 2pm to 5pm at Paragon International University.
The WRO is a global robotics competition that is open to anyone from 6 to 25. In teams of up to 3 people and a coach, competitors can participate in one of four categories:
Regular: Teams must design and assemble a robot from LEGO and program it to solve specific challenges on the field in 2 ½ hours. A surprise rule will be given to test the competitors’ abilities to adapt.
Open: Teams are to develop an intelligent robot that can solve a problem based on this year’s theme of SMART Cities and present on the day of competition
Football: Teams must assemble their robot from LEGO and sensors within 2 hours so that it can play football against other robots autonomously.
Advanced Robotics Challenge: Teams will construct their robots with only MATRIX and TETRIX building systems so that it can locate, identify, and stack interlocking coloured shapes to play robot Tetris.
The selected Cambodian teams will travel to Győr in Hungary to represent Cambodia in November, competing against more than 350 other teams from over 55 countries.
