Age Groups

We allow a slight change in the age groups:

Friendship Starter Game is 6 – 10
Elementary is 6 – 13
Junior is 11 – 16
Senior is 14 – 20.

This is ONLY for this Friendship Tournament and not a general change in the age group definitions.

How to qualify

We hope that around +200 teams from all over the world will participate in the event. Please invite teams from your country to join us even if you have not yet held the national qualifying tournament.

The Friendship tournament is created to give more children the opportunity to have international experience and loads of fun with robots – and we welcome all WRO enthusiasts – not only your countries top teams.
