Posted by Yasser Tawfik on

In a world where technology plays an increasingly prominent role, it is crucial to nurture and inspire the next generation of innovators and problem solvers. Recognizing this need, IdeasGym, a leading organization dedicated to promoting STEM education, is launching an exciting competition called "Future Protectors." Aimed at children aged 6 to 10 years old, this competition will be piloted in 2024 as part of the prestigious World Robot Olympiad (WRO) in Egypt. "Future Protectors aims to encourage young minds to express themselves through technology while addressing the pressing global challenges outlined in the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)" said Eng.Marwa Soudi, World Robot Olympiad Egypt, National Organizer.
About The World Robot Olympiad:
The World Robot Olympiad is an international robotics competition that brings together young minds from around the globe to showcase their creativity and problem-solving skills. WRO offers various categories for participants of different age groups, fostering healthy competition and collaboration. The competition is divided into four main categories: Robo-Mission, Future Innovators, Future Engineers, and Robo-Sports.
1. Robo-Mission:
The Robo-Mission challenges participants to design and build robots that can perform specific tasks. Teams are provided with a problem statement and are required to develop innovative solutions using robots. This category encourages participants to think critically, apply scientific principles, and engage in hands-on engineering.
2. Future Innovators:
The Future Innovators encourages participants to explore their creativity and develop robots that can address broader challenges. Teams have the freedom to choose their own problem statements and design robots accordingly. This category fosters innovation, allowing participants to think outside the box and push the boundaries of robotics.
3. Robo-Sports:
This category combines robotics and sports, challenging teams to design and build autonomous robots capable of playing sports such as double tennis. This category promotes teamwork, strategic thinking, and the application of engineering principles in a dynamic and competitive environment.
