World Robot Olympiad India (WRO India) is one of the largest Robotics competition in India for students between the age group of 9 to 25 years, held since 2006. It is a not-for-profit competition jointly organized by India Stem Foundation and National Council of science and Museum.
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 model that look or behave like a human athlete. The competition starts from preliminary to the final judging.
WRO 2016 is being jointly organized by India STEM Foundation and National Council of Science Museums (NCSM).
India STEM Foundation is a pioneer in promoting hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education in India with the intervention of Robotics and research based learning programs for school and college students. India STEM foundation is the affiliate partner of World Robot Olympiad Association in India.
National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) is India’s premier body playing a key role in the growth of science and technology by organizing various science education programs, activities and trainings within and outside of Schools and Colleges at its science centres spread across the country in order to develop and inculcate scientific attitude, temper and general awareness amongst the people of the country.
Over 6 billion people live on planet Earth today, generating an estimated 1.9 billion tons of domestic, industrial, medical, electronic, radioactive, toxic and hazardous waste every year. Experts believe that the waste generated will double by 2025. That is in just 10 years from now!
Can you believe that 30% of the waste generated remains uncollected? And that a large part of the remaining 70% is dumped in oceans, landfills and dumpsites where it is polluting and clogging our ecosystem, causing numerous health and environmental challenges as only 19% is recycled?
We have to find ways to reduce, manage and recycle waste – and solutions to not generate waste in the first place – or we may be surrounded by mountains of waste. Or find ourselves sitting on top of one!
