About the Competition:

 

The OneWorld Robotics Competition challenges students from Years 7, 8, and 9 from all over the globe to apply STEAM-related skills through robotics to solve real-world problems. Area Competitions will be held over two days, where teams compete in technical challenges as well as present a legal, social, and ethical solutions to AV application in Smart Cities.

The Global Competition will involve the top three teams from all Area Competitions competing over five days. Students will have their projects assessed by a panel of industry experts. As the students take on the timely category of “Smart Cities” they will contemplate topics such as the benefit of Autonomous Vehicles in alleviating the problems associated with transport congestion and over-population, while honing their critical thinking skills.
