What’s a robotics competition

Being among the most joyful events, robotics competitions are significantly popular among school and university students. In these contest, the participating robots are designed and programmed to complete a task and beat their rivals. Branded materials category of robotics competitions is usually sponsored by different companies including Lego. Basic knowledge of electronics, graphic design, web creation is among the skills the participants will use to secure their winning positions.




The Australian, Azerbaijan, British, Croatian, French, Greek, Indian, Iranian, Japanese, Pakistani, Romanian, Tanzanian, Ukrainian and USA students grade 9-12 from Pakistan Embassy International School and College (Tehran), Kendriya Vidyalaya (Indian Embassy School), Savior International School (Qom), Avicenna International School (Tehran) and Nimrooz School (Tehran) are challenged to design a robot in a Lego-concept, hone their teamwork skills, and finally build and program industrial-sized robots to play against like-minded competitors in a uniquely multicultural environment. During the competition, each team is given a specific color to be identified as the representative of their school and there are assigned trainers and mentors who help them to utilize their skills and design and program their robots.
