Regular Category

The Regular Category is a challenge based competition in which students must build construct and program their robots to solve a challenge. Examples could be for the robot to climb stairs and collect table tennis balls or sort objects of various colours and shapes.

WRO operates with three age categories: Elementary, Junior and Senior. Each age category will compete using individually designed challenges to ensure age appropriateness in terms of difficulty.

The challenges are developed by the host country of the final in a given year and instructions on how to construct the challenges will be made available online and distributed to National Organizers.

Games and rules for the WRO 2016 Regular Category challenges are available from the WRO 2016 website at
