A truly global competition
dedicated to science, technology and education
At World Robot Olympiad it is our mission to give as many young people all the opportunity to develop their creativity and problem solving skills in a fun and engaging way.
We do this by organizing robotics competitions. Each season we have a new theme and we have challenges that are tailored to the age of the participants. Starting as low as 6 or 7 years old up to University level.
WRO tournaments are organized in over 75 countries worldwide and each season new countries join the movement.
World Robot Olympiad Association is a non-profit organization. All revenue from sponsorships and fees is invested in support of our mission, which is to promote robotics in STEM education worldwide.
On this website you will find a lot of general information about our competition.

The ROES Categories
4 categories with different age groups
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. 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.
