WRO 2013 Challenges -
- Elementary - In the start area, the robot will carry 5 color objects for the challenge. The colors of the objects are: Red, Blue and Green. The robot has to move from “Start” (green area). Along the way, the robot has to place the 5 randomly sequenced color objects into the correct sorting color bins (also determined randomly). Then it has to move the cylinder from Cylinder Zone to Storage Area, and return to “Finish” area (Additional score will be given if the robot passes through the Hurdle on its way back to the “Finish” area).
- Junior High - The robot begins in the “Start” area. It will have to pass through the valley and enter the "Shrine" zone. It will then need to lift up all the stupas in the Challenge Object Area and place it outside the relic statue. The robot will then need to check for the black relic statue, and bring it to the “Finish” area (red zone) passing through the stairs.
- Senior High - The robot's mission is to travel around the Komodo island, collect and count the number of Komodo eggs, and carry them back to the Base area. Only the Komodo eggs should be collected and carried back to the Base area. Other species eggs may not be removed from their original places. The robot can solve the challenge in different ways: either it goes on the "Komodo Island" or around the "seaside" to collect the eggs.
