UAE to host national robot olympiad

Abu Dhabi, September 28, 2008

The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) will conduct the third ‘UAE National Robot Olympiad’ (UNRO) - an annual robotics competition for middle and high-school students on October 13.

Edutech Middle East, a leading provider of technology-enabled knowledge solutions, and LEGO Education, the leading manufacturer of robotic solutions, have joined hands as partners of the event.

“The Robot Olympiad is a valuable means to get students to consider the study of science and technology as a career and to produce valuable inventions that will benefit our society,” said Dr Mugheer Khamis Al-Khaili, director general of ADEC.

The winning teams from this competition will be sent to the ‘World Robot Olympiad 2008’ (WRO) - the international robotics championship for the Asia-Pacific region, which is being held in Yokohama, Japan.

The competition is under two categories: the Regular Category for High Schools, which has a theme ‘Recycle Keeper’, and the Open Category, where the theme will be ‘Saving Global Environment’.

“The outstanding success of previous editions of the ‘UAE National Robot Olympiad’ has inspired us to continue to support this initiative,” said ASF Karim, CEO, Edutech Middle East.-TradeArabia News Service
