The Singapore Tech Challenge (STC) started out as the World Robo Tournament (WRT) in 2008 as a fun, carnival-like robotics competition for primary and secondary school students. Today, STC is into its 3rd installation and is now bigger and better than ever! The competition typically features four events, with the aim of unleashing participants’ creativity and giving them a platform to compete while having fun. At the same time, STC provides an opportunity for youths to hone their organizational skills by taking up leadership roles in planning and hosting the competition!
• Show that robotics is not only about tough competitions, but also about having fun!
