“To bring together young people all over the world to develop their creativity, design and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robot competitions and activities.”
It was decided that the annual WRO™ international final would be hosted by a different country each year. In 2004, the event was hosted by Singapore and 12 countries participated. Only ten years later teams from 48 countries travelled to Sochi in Russia for the international final!
Today, the competition that started small in a few Asian countries has expanded to over 60 countries spread over all continents, making WRO™ a truly global event.
