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.

Engineering. Simplicity. is the enduring philosophy of Juniper Networks, a leader in automated, scalable and secure networks. In the digital age, networks are the lifeblood of how the world lives, works and communicates – encompassing schools, hospitals, transportation systems, entertainment, internet connectivity, retailers, emergency services, banks and beyond, in every community, in every government and in every economy. Juniper believes that this intelligent, sophisticated, powerful technology can – must – also be simple to be effective, efficient and accessible.
Not least, automation has become a key enabler of such technology, functioning alongside humans to create and operate networks that can scale, flex and protect, dynamically adapting to conditions, developments and challenges in nanoseconds. Therefore it is imperative that the upcoming generations understand automation – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, virtualization – in order to take technology forward into their future. We are proud to be the global technology partner of World Robot Olympiad in 2018 and beyond, as it is the perfect nurturing environment for tomorrow’s automation innovators.
