A total of 115 teams will participate in Robothon, while 92 students will compete in the WeCode programming competition.

The theme of this year’s events will be “FoodEffect 2050”, which aims to get students thinking about the possibility of food shortages by 2050 and how robotics could be used as a solution in the context of the ever-increasing global population and further reduced arable land.

Therefore, the role of automation and robotics in agricultural production will become increasingly important for future generations.

The contests are co-organised by the Management Board of the Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park under the Ministry of Science and Technology, DTT Eduspec Joint Venture at the STEM Institute, along with primary and secondary schools across the four cities.
