World Robot Olympiad
Welcome to the 2024 season of the World Robot Olympiad (WRO)!
PSSEC is excited to launch the WRO 2024 Season and we’re happy to continue our collaboration with WRO as the National Organizer to provide the Pakistani youth access to the global stage of innovative young minds.
‘Science Unites’ is the motto that the Turkish WRO organiser has been working with since 2004. Their name Bilim Kahramanları Derneği says it all, it translates to Science Heroes Association. This focus on science has also been a national priority since the foundation of the country. Science is the compass to overcome all challenges, to create the best environment for all lives and to become the main pillar for the education of all children and youth.
Hosting the International Final is a good opportunity for Science Heroes to raise more awareness to the efforts of promoting science throughout the society. The goal is to use this awareness to double the number of WRO teams in the country. The large community of WRO volunteers in Turkey is thrilled to be hosting WRO in 2024.
PSSEC is happy to announce that in the 2024 season, we will be offering Robo Mission, Future Innovators and Future Engineers:
Elementary: 8 – 12 year olds
Junior: 11 – 15 year olds
Senior: 14 – 19 year olds
