  • Software: Free choice
  • Maximum size: Max. 25 x 25 x 25 cm
  • Features: Build and program a robot that solves challenges in a field.

WRO® RoboMission is a competition based on challenges. Students must design, build, and program an autonomous robot that can solve specific challenges in a field. All robot parts, including controller, motors and sensors, must be from LEGO® (MINDSTORMS® NXT or EV3, SPIKE PRIME or Robot Inventor).

FUTURE INNOVATORS

  • Age: Elementary: 8-12 | Junior: 11-15 | Senior: 14-19

The robot must be built with LEGO® materials, including the controller, motors and sensors (MINDSTORMS® NXT or EV3, SPIKE PRIME or Robot Inventor). The game changes every 3 or 4 years and the current one is Double Tennis.

FUTURE ENGINEERS

  • Age: 14 19
  • Team size: 2-3 people guided by a coach
  • Hardware: Free choice
  • Software: Free choice

With WRO® Future Engineers we have created an exciting category for older students. With this new format, we want to bring today's research challenge to schools and teach students an engineering workflow by solving real-world problems. Teams can use any robot, controller and materials that conform to the rules.
