The World Robotic Olympiad is an international organization that aims to bring together young people from all over the world to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills through challenging and educational robotics competitions. In 2015 the WRO had 55 countries and close to 22,000 teams from around the world taking part in various competitions.
It is an absolute pleasure to announce that the team of Jacob Liu, Evan Xie, Vaishnavan Somasekaram, Tom Wang, Calvin Shen, Weize Yang, and Jeff Zhang came first overall (out of 10 teams) at the event. In doing so, they secured the right to represent Canada at the International World Robotics Olympiad in Costa Rica in November of this year! The team of Shane Dong, Ivan Seit, and Jack Ye did very good work in preparation for the WRO. Although their robot did not place among the top teams at the event, it was clear that they learned a lot during the process of building and competing with their robot. I could not be more proud of the work the two teams did and their subsequent accomplishments.
