The Philippine Robotics Olympiad (PRO) is a science, technology, and educational event which aims to offer an opportunity for students to expand their horizons through the exploration of robots and robotic systems in schools. The 17th Philippine Robotics Olympiad launching ceremony was recently held at the iCreate Café Manila, Expo Hall, Fishermall, Quezon Avenue, Quezon City.

 

The PRO partners with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Science Education Institute – Department of Science and Technology (DOST). The launch highlighted the winning entries of the Philippines during the World Robot Olympiad 2017 held in Costa Rica. There were also Robotics demonstations and testimonials from Robotics enthusiasts.

 

“The PRO generates early interest in science and technology. The event encourages our youth to be our future scientists, engineers, and inventors. The Robotics program is an exciting development in Education,” Mylene Abiva, National Organizer, Philippine Robotics Olympiad, and President/CEO, FELTA Multi-Media Inc.

 

The PRO participants use LEGO Robotics which can be manipulated using an EV3 or NXT brick, a microcomputer that serves as the “brain” of Robolab inventions. The participants also use computers to design a program with command icons. The Program is transferred to the EV3 brick via Wi-Fi and the robots are commanded to move in various ways through designated field challenges.

 

This year, we expect over 800 public and private schools nationwide to participate in the national competition. The grand awardees will represent the Philippines in the World Robot Olympiad 2018 to be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand on November 15 – 19, 2018. Fifty seven countries from all over the world will join the World Robot Olympiad. The theme for this year is “Food Matters.”

 

The 17th Philippine Robotics Olympiad is supported by Intel® Education, Asia Pacific Colleges, INTECO ISUZU Dealerships, Astrotel, Fishermall, Microsoft®, OMIZU Water, De La Salle Lipa Batangas (Venue for Dry-Run), Ateneo de Manila University (Venue for Teacher’s Training), and iCreate Café Manila.
