World Robot Olympiad 2007
The previous blog brought up the World Robot Olympiad (WRO), a LEGO Mindstorms competition, which will be in Taipei, Taiwan November 17 & 18, 2007 (thanks Rick).
There are regular competitions for primary school, junior high school, and senior high school students: "Robo Rally" and "Robo Puzzle Race" for primary students, "Robo Ambulating Rally" and "Train of Alishan" for junior high school students, and "Robo Sorting" and "Alishan Timber Loader" for senior high school students. There is also an open competition with the Theme: “Civil safety, security and emergency response” (sounds exciting, but this link has yet to provide the details).
Since many of the readers of this Blog are only familiar with FIRST LEGO League, could those readers that have been to the WRO please share their experiences with the rest of us. (You may include links to your own picture & videos you have taken at previous WRO competitions, and to your team's website.)
