The purpose:
The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is a global robotics competition; moreover, it is an indicative international educational activity. Each year, the WRO involves approximately 100,000 young people, who are from 6 to 25 years old and from more than 60 countries around the world. The WRO includes comprehensive scientific and technological capabilities, such as electronic technology, automation technology, artificial intelligence technology and pattern recognition technology.
In Macau, more than 30 primary and secondary schools are implementing STEM education with joining WRO. It aims to enable young people who love robotics to learn through this interesting and cooperative competition, and learn more about robotics history. WRO includes football, regular (primary, junior and senior), WEDO and open category.

Macau Science and Technology Innovation Education Association (MSTIEA) will host the “2018 WRO World Olympic Robot Competition and Macau International Invitational Tournament” on October 14th, 2018, for primary and secondary students.
We hope to build a learning platform for improving their skills and problem solving ability; enhance teamwork spirit and exchange experience with other regions’ students.
