In July 2018, for only the second time, the WTRA (World Teenage Robotics Association) roboticscompetition will take place in Belfast. Working closely with the Chinese robotics education organisation, IDIY RoTec, Sentinus will manage the competition, and an accompanying cultural experience, which will see at least 50 Chinese students visiting Northern Ireland for five days. The competition, which will take place at Belfast City Hall, will be open to students from Northern Ireland, as well as those from further afield.
As part of the experience, the Chinese visitors will have an opportunity to participate in a range of educational activities and meet key local representatives, including Belfast’s Lord Mayor, and visit some of Northern Ireland’s best known tourist attractions, Belfast City Hall and Parliament Buildings.
Sentinus welcomes all entries from schools, community groups, families or individuals to participate in the competition. If you are interested in participating you can download the WTRA Competition Rules 2018 or for more detailed information on the event please go to the Competition Website.
