Futurite presents WRO training course for 2017

World Robot OlympiadTM (WRO) brings together young people from all over the world to develop their creativity, design and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robot competitions and activities. The international WRO final takes place once every year in November and teams qualify from national competitions to represent their countries.

Sustainabots: Robots for sustainability

Sustainabots are designed to care for the planet, the people and themselves. A Sustainabot is developed to change our world without affecting it, integrating the 3 pillars of Sustainability: Environmental, Social and Economical.  The creation of sustainable robots can help us to have sustainable regions all around the world. They can help reach the Sustainable Development Goals. Can you help us by taking action to preserve our mother earth? It is the home for all of us. 

REGULAR CATEGORY

This year students are expected to come up with innovative solutions using robotics technology to create Sustainabots: Robots for sustainability

ELEMENTARY WRO Training Course

As one of the richest countries in biodiversity, a lot of different ecosystems can be found in Costa Rica. There are areas open to the public, national parks and protected reservoirs that have been established to protect our natural resources. For a country with green rainforests in the mountains and blue oceans on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, many endangered species are found. It is important to preserve the habitats of the jaguars and turtles, and other endangered species, to prevent them from becoming extinct.

Game Description: The mission of the robot is to bring Scientists and Visitors from the Start Area to the Scientist and Visitor Areas (S&V’s). The robot must also move an endangered animal discovered in a S&V to the adjacent rainforest (the green Endangered Species Areas) or to the adjacent ocean (the blue Endangered Species Areas). The mission is completed when the robot is within the Finish Area

JUNIOR WRO Training Course

Greenhouse gasses, such as carbon dioxide, emitted by human activities like transportation, industrial processes and energy production affect the temperature of our planet. The Challenge is to make a robot that can help one company reach carbon neutrality. To accomplish this, the robot must install renewable energy sources, like solar panels, and plant trees to counterbalance the emissions from the industrial processes of the company.

Game Description: The mission of the robot is to bring the carbon footprint of one company to zero. The carbon footprint of a company is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the industrial processes of the company. The robot must install solar panels and plant the right kind of trees in the different planting areas to counterbalance the emissions of the company

WRO FOOTBALL

An exciting Robot soccer match that requires students to design and program two robots to compete against an opposing pair of robots by kicking an infra-red ball into opposing team’s goal.

Game Description: WRO Football aims, where possible, to reflect the game of human soccer. Teams of two on two autonomous robots chase an infra-red transmitting ball around a WRO size table top field with the aim to kick more goals than the opposition. Aims Robotics is a wonderful platform for learning 21st century skills. Solving robotic challenges builds innovation, creativity and problem solving skills in students, and because robotics cross multiple curriculum subjects, students must learn and apply their knowledge in science, engineering, math, and computer programming. The most rewarding part of designing robots is that students have fun, work together as a team, and learning occurs as naturally as breathing air.
