Outshining over 450 teams, team "High Voltage" from (Gurugram) won a silver in the Regular Junior High category in the 13th World Robot Olympiad (WRO) that concluded at Expo Mart in Greater on Sunday.

The two-day international championship, jointly organised by National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture and STEM Foundation (ISF), was based on the theme "Rap the Scrap".

"We witnessed some path-breaking ideas and prototypes, as the students developed innovative ways of designing and programming autonomous robots. We believe this competition had a tremendous learning experience for the participants," A.S. Manekar, Director General, NCSM, and Chairman Advisory Board of WRO 2016 Organising Committee, said in a statement.

The competition was held for students in the 9-25 years age group in categories -- Regular category (Elementary, Junior High, Senior High), WRO Football, Open category and Advanced Robotics Challenge.

"The WRO holds a dear place in our hearts. I wish to point out the important role of robotics in the context of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education," Law King Hui, Chair of the WRO Advisory Committee, said.

"Applying STEM knowledge in forming concrete solutions, all the while thinking creatively and critically, with the ability to communicate and collaborate with others is the essence of WRO," Law noted.

Prior to the finals, regional competitions were held at Delhi, Lucknow, Tirupati, Thiruvananthapuram, Chennai, Kolkata, Varanasi, Guwahati, Bangaluru, Surat, Mumbai, Bhopal and Chandigarh earlier this year.
