THE Philippine Robotics team is again ready to shock the world with its innovative robots and robotic systems as it vies for this year’s World Robot Olympiad in Sochi, Russia, in November.

The Philippines will be represented by “techie warriors” composed of young engineers and innovators from the country’s premier schools.

At least 36 countries are expected to participate and compete in this year’s international robotics competition to be held from November 19 to 25.

Mylene Abiva, national organizer of the Philippine Robotics Olympiad, said more than 400 public and private elementary and high schools submitted entries in the 13th Philippine Robotics Olympiad.

The annual competition, organized by FELTA Multi-Media Inc., in partnership with the Science Education Institute, Department of Science and Technology and supported by the Department of Education, seeks to provide an opportunity for students to learn the latest trends in the field through Robotics.

“Through the Philippine Robotics Olympiad, we do not only see the great potential of our students and the vast opportunities that the country can explore to continue providing the best educational resources to our students,” Abueva said.
