A truly global robotics competition

dedicated to science, technology and education

Our mission is to help young people develop their creativity and problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way. We do this by organizing robotics competitions in four different categories for students aged 8-19 years.

World Robot Olympiad™ Association is an independent 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.

WRO® tournaments are organized in over 90 countries worldwide.

Numbers 2023

From the start in 2004 WRO® has grown fast, including more countries and more children and young people each year. The Covid pandemic made it very hard for countries to organize events in 2020 and 2021. But in 2023 we have seen the number of member countries and the number of teams participating in WRO growing again.
