We are living in a transitional era when human-robot co-existence is rapidly becoming a norm in society, similar to how personal computers and smartphones became such integral parts of our lives, whether we were ready for them or not. World Robotic Summit – World Robot Challenge Junior Category aims to provide unique opportunities for students from around the world to imagine robots coexisting in their everyday life, create and realize their dream collaboration with robots in their everyday setting, either at home or school. World Robot Challenge Junior Category attracts young roboticists who are interested in programming and/or engineering robots to become active users and creators of future robots.
