Each year, students from around the globe compete in World Robot Olympiad. To claim the coveted championship, they use their engineering skills, LEGO® ingenuity, and competitive drive to qualify regionally, nationally, and internationally. ME & MY ROBOT follows 18 teams from 10 different countries — utilizing video diaries from the kids themselves. We see their trials and tribulations as they head to Thailand for the 2018 finals. Not just a story about winners and losers, we witness children from around the world working through the common language of engineering — harnessing its power to solve the world’s most complex problems.
