In 2016, the Ayb Educational Foundation introduced another world known competition in Armenia, the World Robot Olympiad. Ayb is the only official representative of the Olympiad in Armenia and the organizer of the national competition. With this Olympiad, Ayb seeks to promote the teaching of robotics, programming and engineering in Armenian schools and encourage students to participate in international competitions and olympiads.
Students aged 10-19 are eligible to participate in the competition in teams. The tasks of the WRO national competition are the same as those of the international event.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 situation, the international round of the WRO will not take place this year. However, taking into account the numerous feedback and calls, the Ayb Educational Foundation has decided to organize the national round of this grand robotics event in a format that is a combination of online and real-life rounds.
The registration for the national round of the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is now open until September 7, 2020. If you have a robotics class, or are a coach or a group leader assisting 10-19-year-olds to obtain the knowledge and skills required for working with Lego Mindstorms EV3/NXT education kits, don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this fun and interactive competition! The national round of the contest will take place in November of the current year, and this time, the topic will focus on the most urgent challenges for planet Earth, those of climate change and of COVID-19 pandemic..
To participate in the contest, you can register here.
Surprise gifts will be awaiting the winner teams of the national tournament.
Not only problems intended for the international tournament of the World Robot Olympiad will be offered at the national competition but also the new LegoStart level problems, which aim to make the tournament accessible for a larger number of children, thus enabling novice teams to gain experience and participate in the next levels of the tournament as well.
