If you are looking to support STEM education and have your contribution reach as many young people as possible, we're a great match. World Robot Olympiad is probably the most global robotics competition out there: Since 2004 we've helped more than 650,000 kids around the world become coders and robotics builders.
By becoming a WRO partner you help foster the inventors and engineers of tomorrow. And there is the added benefit of being recognised as a visionary brand by our community in 85+ countries.
There are many ways to support us: You can become a partner, sponsor a competition category or provide seed money to develop new concepts to increase outreach of STEM in a region or worldwide. Or your support can be focused on economically-disadvantaged areas in a specific country.
Contact Secretary General Claus Ditlev Christensen to talk about which solution fits your CSR strategy, and how we can help you make a mark in the world.
For more than 35 years, LEGO® Education has empowered students to turn their natural curiosity into creative exploration, equipping them to take on the future as the world changes around them. Students bring science, technology, design engineering, math and coding to life in the classroom using LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3. Here, they design and build programmable robots to solve problems within STEM, combining their design and coding skills to create innovative solutions to real-world problems. Get hands on with the power of coding, by encouraging students to develop 21st century skills through computational thinking, as they program solutions in a real-world context, using engaging physical and digital creation.http://www.legoeducation.com
Engineering Simplicity is the enduring philosophy of Juniper Networks, a leader in automated, scalable and secure networks. In the digital age, networks are the lifeblood of how the world lives, works and communicates – encompassing schools, hospitals, transportation systems, entertainment, internet connectivity, retailers, emergency services, banks and beyond, in every community, in every government and in every economy. Juniper believes that this intelligent, sophisticated, powerful technology can - must - also be simple to be effective, efficient and accessible.
Not least, automation has become a key enabler of such technology, functioning alongside humans to create and operate networks that can scale, flex and protect, dynamically adapting to conditions, developments and challenges in nanoseconds. Therefore it is imperative that the upcoming generations understand automation - Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, virtualization – in order to take technology forward into their future. We are proud to be the global technology partner of World Robot Olympiad in 2018 and beyond, as it is the perfect nurturing environment for tomorrow’s automation innovators.
MATRIX Robotics was created in 2011 by a group of experienced robotics enthusiasts who have spent the past 15 years working and playing with robots. The people at MATRIX set out to design the robotics system they’ve always wanted and the result was the MATRIX Robotics System; a high quality, affordable, 3D build system.
The people at MATRIX Robotics created this innovative system because they believe that hands on robotics is a great way to learn science, technology, engineering and math and are committed to making robotics accessible to more students worldwide.
MATRIX products can be purchased through local distributors.
Cogmation Robotics develops software simulation tools for the design, control, and testing of LEGO robots. Using the Virtual Robotics Toolkit, users can test and program a virtual version of the Mindstorms EV3 using the exact same programming language (EV3-G) and 3D design tools (LEGO Digital Designer). Simulated robots never break, are never missing pieces, and are always available to work on. The Virtual Robotics Toolkit is an indispensable tool to any World Robot Olympiad team looking to get the leg up on the competition.http://virtualroboticstoolkit.com
Semia is a science and technology education company dedicated to bringing the best STEM learning tools and experience to children. Inscribed in our name, Semia - meaning seed, highlights the core of our company mission which is the growth of children and nurturing them the skills for the 21st century. We firmly believe the best education is much more than how to make the teachers teach better, it is how to create a rich learning environment for students to be excited and engaged in hands-on problem-solving activities. Semia helped establish hundreds of robotics learning labs in schools and in after-school centers and we represent one of the founding member countries of World Robot Olympiad. Today with offices in China, USA, Hong Kong and Taiwan, we hope to continue our mission in STEM and also provide a culture exchange platform to bring the children of the world closer together through technology education.http://www.semia.com
