ABOUT THE OLYMPIAD
Starting in 2004, World Robot Olympiad has developed to a truly global competition. WRO tournaments are organized in more than 60 countries and each season new countries join the movement. The WRO international final in November is hosted by a different country each year.
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
This year we will return to Asia for the WRO international final. From 16 to 18 November, selected teams from all over the world will travel to Chiang Mai in the northern part of Thailand. The WRO 2018 International Final is organized by Gammaco, in cooperation with several ministries and other organizations.
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 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.
This year’s WRO theme is FOOD MATTERS, it focuses on the way we grow, share and consume food. It is an important theme because one in nine people in the world today (795 million people) are undernourished. And with a growing population in the world, more and more food needs to be produced every year. We can use technology to help grow more and better food and reduce food waste.
