From the start in 2004 WRO has grown fast, including more countries and more children and young people each year.
Data about 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic hit all of our member countries, they needed to cancel events and could not reach the same amount of students as usual. For most countries the pandemic also came before they had closed registration, so it is hard to determine how many teams they would have reached last season.
Because of this we have no meaningful data about participating teams in 2020.
We were expecting to grow the number of member countries considerably in 2020. But most of the organizations that were ready to start WRO in their country decided to postpone their activities.
