Achievements & Updates…
SR Students Compete in WRO Nationals!
The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is an international robot competition that allows students from all over the world to exercise their design and problem-solving skills through challenging competitions/activities. Each year a new theme and challenge are selected, and participants work on teams of two or three to design, create, and build a robot that is capable of performing a certain challenge. The competition is organized from regional, state, and national levels, with top teams in nationals advancing to the World Championships.
The theme this year is called “Smart Cities,” which is new concepts, ideas, and technologies that will help to build future cities and change existing forms of life. Some concepts that have been introduced are new IT Networks, transportation, and economical energy consumption.
This year during the 2019 WRO, two SR students are advancing to the WRO-USA Nationals! Tvisha C. and Samhita P. (both 7th grade) participated in the NJ State level competition and received 3rd place, which qualifies them to move on to the National Competition level. The WRO – USA Nationals was held at the Juniper Aspiration Dome in Sunnyvale, CA on September 15th and WRO World Championship will be held in Gyor, Hungary this coming November.
