HTL Braunau at the World Robot Olympiad from 18 - 21 November 2021
WRO Austria team live in Switzerland
The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is an international robotics competition that aims to get children and young people excited about science and technology. Participants work in teams of 2 or 3 together with a coach on new tasks each year.
In the competitions, the teams primarily build robots with the LEGO MINDSTORMS system, but depending on the competition category, all other controllers, building materials or programming languages are also permitted. Children and young people between the ages of 13 - 19 can participate.
The World Robot Olympiad Association aims to enable young people to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills. The WRO has set the following main goals:
To provide young people with the opportunity to learn skills such as creative and innovative thinking
To motivate young people to become the scientists, engineers and inventors of tomorrow and to highlight the exciting world of topics related to automation and (robotic) technology.
To show a connection between modern technologies and their use in educational institutions and to promote the use of robots in STEM education (mathematics, computer science, natural science, technology)
To give young people around the world the chance to demonstrate their skills in competitions with fun and teamwork.
The Senior Team of WRO Austria has qualified for the World Finals again this year and will be on site.
The World Final, which will be held in Switzerland from November 18 to 21, will be held hybrid. That means internationally online, but as guests on site.
The event can be followed via the official website www.wro2021.org.
WRO Austria has been organized by Techno-Z Braunau am Inn since May 2018 and aims to get children and young people aged 8-19 excited about technology with the competition.
Ginzinger electronic systems is sponsor of the WRO Austria team of the HTL Braunau am Inn.
We wish the team all the best, lots of fun and great new experiences!
