The Philippine National Robotics student team won bronze medals at the World Robotics Olympiad Friendship Invitational (WRO) tournament held in Denmark from 21 to 24 September 2023.
At the elementary level for ‘Future Innovators,’ Sabina Lim and Genenyl Canlas from DepEd’s Special Education for the Gifted (SpEd-G) of Olongapo City took the bronze medal.
“The victory of the robotics team at the World Robot Olympiad is a proud moment for the Philippines. We are delighted that these Filipino students have proven that we have what it takes to be a frontrunner in the field of robotics,” Philippine Ambassador to Denmark Leo-Herrera Lim said.
Odense was the city hosting the tournament and is also considered a hotspot for robotics in Denmark. On the website of WRO, they stress how Odense is investing massively in robotics education for all school children in the municipality. And that WRO was established to inspire young students to take an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and thus pursue a career within this field.
