Welcome to WRO!

At the 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.

On this website you will find a lot of general information about our competition. You can find important links on this page

Season Theme: PowerBots

This year the WRO theme is PowerBots – The Future of Energy.
In 2021, your team will be looking at the challenges that come with using more energy from renewable sources. Teams in the Regular Category will build and program robots that modernize the energy use of a house, assist with charging cars in a parking garage and help manage the energy mix on the grid.
Teams in Open Category will develop robots that will allow us to use renewable sources of energy in the most efficient way.

International Final Online

The WRO 2021 International Final will take place online due to the pandemic.

Normally we travel to one of our member countries with hundreds of teams. But because of the Covid pandemic, we expect that this will still be very difficult in 2021. That is why we have decided to organize an official online event that will take place November 18th – 20th.

Our Partners

WRO is proud to be supported by leading technological companies and organizations that share our mission of bringing robotics to as many young people as possible.

We would not be able to organize the World Robot Olympiad without our partners, who support us in numerous ways.
