HiTechnic is an official sponsor of the World Robot Olympiad. WRO is an international robotics competition that believes that 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. WRO has been building this learning platform for 7 years, ever since their first robotics competition in 2004 where they had 12 countries and 4000 teams. This year they anticipate over 35 countries and over 13,000 teams from around the world taking part in WRO activities in local, regional, and national competitions. WRO 2012 will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, November 9-11, 2012.
