2017-11-22

The World Educational Robot Contest (WER) World Championship 2017 was held in Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center (NECC) on 18 and 19 of November, 2017.   Around 10,000 contestants from close to 50 countries and regions attended this global event.

WER is organized by the World Educational Robot Contest Society (WERS) which is co-founded by Professor Jack Mendelssohn of Connecticut Robots Society and Dr. Yun Weimin of Shanghai PartnerX Robotics Co., Ltd. in 2013. The mission of WERS, among others, is to promote interest in STEM and to nurture logical thinking, creativity and hands-on skills of our youths in schools.

Started in 2013, the contest has now attracted more 500,000 participants annually to its regional contests in more than 30 countries like US, Canada, Spain, Crotia, Mexico, UAE, India, Malaysia, Philippines, etc. (www.wercontest.org)

We have this year established the WER Hong Kong Region and have sent 4 teams (3 from primary and 1 from secondary school) to the World Championship 2017 in Shanghai,  and the result is overwhelming.   Our secondary school team has won an "Outstanding Contribution" major award for the innovative line tracing sensor design of their robot and the enhancement to the line tracing program.   On the other hand, despite of being newbies to robotics, our primary schools have performed very well and had captured various Best Team Awards,   not to mention a Third Prize in the Best Team Video Award Coompetition.

Aside from the regional contests and the annual world final championship, there are also WER Interntional Opens held annually from July to October in different countries such as the US Open (Los Angeles), Canada Open (Vancouver), Mexico Open (Guanajuato), Australia Open (Sydney) and European Open (Seville, Spain).  Interested schools can apply to attend these Opens through WER Hong Kong.
