WRO USA is a national member of World Robot Olympiad (WRO), an international robotics competition that brings together young people from all over the world to develop their creativity, design & problem solving skills through challenging & educational robot competitions and activities.

WRO USA organizes competitions throughout the US at regional, state, and national levels. Top teams from the national level competition earn an invitation to the World Championships.

Participants work together with a coach in teams or two or three students to perform new tasks every year. Teams create, design and build a robot model that is capable to perform a challenge. Each year a new theme and challenge are set. The competition starts from preliminary rounds to the final judging.

Children aged between 8 and 19 years can participate in one of the three competition categories: Regular, Open or Football Category. Participants between the ages of 17 and 25 years old can participate in the Advanced Robotics Challenge Category.

2020 will be greater than ever for the USA. We are continually allowing children to explore and challenge themselves and growing to new cities to support STEM awareness. In 2018, we invited 9 teams to the International Final in Thailand; in 2019, we sent amazing teams to the International Final in Hungary. Next year, the International Final will be held in Canada.
