WER ORLANDO World Educational Robot Contest

INTRODUCTION

WER is acronym for World Educational Robot Contest. It was founded and organized by World Educational Robotics Society (WERS).
WER is an international robot contest for teenagers from 4 to 18. Annually, more than 500,000 contestants from 50 countries participate in WER contests. With the expansion of influence, winners of WER world championships will bring great honors to their countries, schools as well as to themselves. They will be awarded scholarship and may even be directly admitted to elite universities or their achievement may be deemed as crucial basis for university admission.

MISSION

Held by World Educational Robotics Society and undertaken by World Educational Robotics Society National Branches, the WER National/Regional Opens face WER contests of various nations and regions. Part of the contests is available to contestants from other countries.

WER ABILIX HOME LEAGUE

League under World Educational Robot Contest (WER) tailored for students of Abilix Homes and Abilix Stores. Each year, Spring League and Autumn League are held.

PROJECTS

The contest is mainly divided into two segments:

“PRE-SET TASK” and “ADDITIONAL-SITE TASK” .

Predetermined Task: accounts for 40% of the total score
The “Predetermined Task” refers to the project tasks that contestants know about in advance of the event. These tasks are relatively difficult, since students will have had time to prepare for them.

On-site Task: accounts for 60% of the total score

The “On-site Task” refers to the project tasks that will be revealed on site. There are three projects of different difficulty levels, and students are required to finish the tasks by themselves, on the spot, without coaches’ instruction. This requirement is fundamental to the educational goals of WER because “It is a contest for students, rather than for coaches.”
The projects can be divided into competition items and research items
