VIRTUAL ROBOTICS JAMAICA
September 16, 2021
Virtual Robotics Jamaica consists of 6 competitions as part of the WRO Robot Virtual Games (Jamaica & International finals) and the Halls of Learning Robotics League. The Halls of Learning Robotics League consists of 4 tournaments for each of the 3 age groups: Under 13, Under 16 and Under 20. Each tournament has a particular theme and each age group has a topic within that theme that the robotics challenge is based upon. There is therefore a unique opportunity for students to learn about the real life problems (and real life solutions) that they are competing to solve in the tournament.
The top 3 teams from each category of the WRO Robot Virtual Games Jamaica finals will have the opportunity to participate in the WRO Online finals. Teams will have to have their own robot and materials.

- WRO Robot Virtual Games Jamaica finals | Oct 4 – Oct 10
