Robotics is a wonderful platform for learning 21st century skills. Solving robotic challenges builds innovation, creativity and problem solving skills in students, and because robotics cross multiple curriculum subjects, students must learn and apply their knowledge in science, engineering, math, and computer programming. The most rewarding part of designing robots is that students have fun, work together as a team, and learning occurs as naturally as breathing air.

The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is an event that brings young people together from all over the world. It is a combination of science, technology and education. This event will provide aspiring students an opportunity to combat various robotic challenges and develop problem solving skills. The most rewarding part of robotics is seeing a robot perform after all the hard work a team has put into it.

About WRO

The World Robot Olympiad is an event for science, technology and education which brings together the young people all over the world to develop their creativity and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robotics competitions.

Schools are invited to enter a team of three students to participate in this competition. Participating teams need to create, design and build a robot models that look s or behave like a human athlete. The competition starts from preliminary to the final judging.


  • Provide students up to the age of 19 an opportunity to expand their horizons through exploration of robots and robotic systems in the school.
  • Introduce the concept of modern science into school's educational activities in science and technology.
  • Provide an opportunity to promote creative thinking, improve communications and cooperation skills strengthen the ability to acquire new knowledge highly relevant towards progressive education.
  • Bring together young people all over the world to develop creativity and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robot competition.
  • To widen the youth's view in the application of science & technology, improve their learning efficiency & encourage our youth to be future scientists, engineers and inventors.

WRO history

It all started back in 1999...

At that time, Mr. TaeSoo Park, the president of the Korean company ”Learning Tool, Inc.”, contacted Mr. Lars Vahl, Director of LEGO Education Asia Pacific, suggesting they should set up a robotics competition involving students from Asian countries.

In year 2000, four countries (Korea, China, Japan and Singapore) joined the pilot project, and the first international competition – titled International Robot Olympiad - took place in the Olympic Park in Seoul, Korea.

World Robot Olympiad was founded in 2004

In 2003 the four founding countries and LEGO Education established an international WRO Committee, who decided to establish a new and permanent robotic organization, based on the idea that students from all over the world should have the opportunity to meet with other students to fulfill the new mission statement, which read:

“To bring together young people all over the world to develop their creativity, design & problem solving skills through challenging & educational robot competitions and activities”

Competitions in WRO

World Robot Olympiad organizes robotics competitions in three different competition categories

The Regular category was the first competition introduced by WRO. It is a challenge based competition in which teams will build robots that are designed to solve a given challenge set on a table.

Later, the Open Category competition was introduced. The Open category is a theme based competition in which teams use their creativity and problem solving skills in constructing smart robotic solutions that complement the theme of the competition. In 2011 the theme of the Open category was "Robots for Life Improvement".

In 2010, WRO introduced WRO GEN II Football for the first time and it is now an official competition in WRO. Here teams of two robots play a game of football (soccer) on a playing field. WRO share the rules for WRO GEN II Football with Robocup Junior Australia.
