International Robot Olympics

The International Robot Olympics are one of the biggest international robotics competitions. It is run annually by the International Robot Olympiad Committee and involves over 500 youth from 38 countries. After passing the preliminary rounds, participants must work in teams to design and build robots to accomplish the mission for the competition while racing against a tight time limit. These individuals learn to think algorithmically and logically. The IRO believes that the 4Cs (Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity) are necessary for the 21st century and is dedicated to develop these traits in the next generation.

The IRO aims to:

1. Uncover potential
2. Spark a strong interest in robotics
3. Promote the skill of self-learning
4. Deliver robust work-place oriented education through collaboration
