ONEWORLD ROBOTICS COMPETITION

It is our greatest pleasure to announce the OneWorld Robotics Competition. We would like to invite you, your students, and your school to participate in this unique and exciting international competition. Open to all Australian secondary school students in years 7, 8 and 9, the OneWorld Robotics Competition brings together schools from all over the globe.

SOLUTION CATEGORIES

SOLUTION CATEGORIES

The OneWorld Robotics Competition offers students the opportunity to develop and apply critical survival skills in pursuit of solving real-world challenges we are facing right now.

The inaugural OneWorld Robotics Competition category for 2019 is

 NAVIGATING SMART CITIES 

 

  • CLIMATE CHANGE

    CLIMATE CHANGE

    Climate change as a result of human action and/or natural causes will dramatically change our way of life. How can we prevent, adapt or help our planet?
  • ENERGY

    ENERGY

    How do we prepare for the ever growing need for more power while remaining sustainable?
  • AGRICULTURE

    AGRICULTURE

    In the 20th century alone the world’s population grew from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. How can we optimize or revolutionize aspects of agriculture to meet growing demand?
  • OCEAN POLLUTION

    OCEAN POLLUTION

    Eighty percent of marine pollution comes from land. Ocean life and ecosystem stability is greatly at risk. Is a robotic solution the answer to this dire situation?
  • MEDICINE

    MEDICINE

    Precision is the cornerstone of robotic integration with medicine and surgery. We have the opportunity to greatly reduce risk in difficult procedures, or simply help in operational efficiency. Do you have the next big idea that saves lives?
  • SMART CITIES

    SMART CITIES

    Modern technology exists to help make our lives easier. What robotic solution do you have for future cities of the world that will improve our quality of life?

THE PRIZES

THE PRIZES

All participants’ efforts will be recognized. Students will be awarded certificates of participation recognising the commitment and teamwork required in the months of preparation leading up to the competition.

The winning OneWorld Global team will receive a monetary prize of USD 5,000. Winning teams in Future Skills categories will receive USD 1,000 for each category.

FUTURE SKILLS

FUTURE SKILLS

Students will have their projects judged based on Future Skills categories utilizing Dr Tony Wagner’s Seven Survival Skills. Assessment will be completed by a panel of judges comprised of industry experts and entrepreneurs.

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
Collaboration Across Networks and Leading by Influence
Agility and Adaptability
Initiative and Entrepreneurial
Effective Oral and Written Communication

Curiosity and Imagination

HARDWARE

HARDWARE

The Competition

Each student will use the Practice Kit to collaborate with their team and demonstrate their robotic problem-solving concept. The kit contains the next generation of FlipRobot, the E310, along with a range of additional extensions. With both hardware and software, participants can create original concepts with greater flexibility.

The purpose of the Practice Kit allows team members to learn and master their hardware and coding skills. Access to online projects to learn and apply these skills are provided with the Practice Kit, serving as the base for their competition preparation. We encourage team coaches to use this time to guide their team in project management, teamwork and groom their future skills.

THE KEY

THE KEY

Competition Key:

Closer to competition time the Competition Key will be released. The missing piece of the puzzle in the form of additional hardware, software, and/or data to directly assist in your team’s real-world problem solution. (The Competition Key will be supplied to teams at no additional cost).

COMPETITION STRUCTURE

COMPETITION STRUCTURE

The competition will start with area competitions held in the following cities:

Auckland
Brisbane
Melbourne
Shanghai
Singapore
Sydney
Taipei

Area Competitions:

Running over two days, teams will present their concept portfolio, rationale, and take part in an active scenario demonstration of their robotic solution to one of the competitions theme categories.

Teams will have their project judged by a panel of industry experts, entrepreneurs and educators. The winning team will receive a robotics classroom set, and the top three teams will be invited to the global competition. All attending students will be awarded certificates of participation.

Global Competition:

Teams from around the world will compete to be best-in-class for Future Skills categories, and ultimately the title of Global Champion. Over five days students and educators will collaborate with other international teams, presenting their projects to a judging panel of internationally recognized experts. Teams will have the opportunity to experience workshops and speaker events specializing in robotics.
