Wonder League Robotics Competition

Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators. Teams of kids ages 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14 will design solutions for real-world science and technology challenges by programming Dash, Dot, and our newest robot, Cue. They will develop problem-solving and creativity skills while building meaningful relationships with their peers and having fun! Plus, they will display their scientific thinking through authentic journaling.

We have closed submissions for this year’s competition.  Congrats to all those teams that completed the first round of missions and to those that have qualified for our Invitational Round.  Stay tuned to learn who will be crowned the next WLRC world champion!  Winner announcements will be released on May 2nd, 2019.

The origins

The Wonder League Robotics Competition started in 2015 and has reached more than 43,000 kids in just a couple of years. This growing network of coding and robotics teams uses our all-inclusive program to inspire an early love of coding, computer science, tangible learning, and STEAM education.

Through a series of story-based missions, the teams develop problem-solving, growth mindset, and creativity skills while learning to code. Two years ago, we invited international teams to participate and continue to see an ever-growing international presence making the Wonder League a truly global competition.

Through the competition, our daughter and her teammates surfaced tremendous creative problem - solving ideas, inventiveness and persistence - critical lifelong skills. What started as a robotics project for a small group of girls grew into a remarkable story for learning and perseverance that excited our entire community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can compete?

Any kid, anywhere in the world, ages 6-14 as of 12/31/18, can participate. There are three age brackets: 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14. Kids must be the qualifying age for their bracket on the last day in 2018, when registration closes.

What makes a team?

A team is made up of a supervising adult coach and one or more children. That’s right, kids can compete solo but will need a coach who is 18+ to help with the submission process! For multi-kid teams, each member must be in the same age bracket. Coaches may have multiple teams within the same registration form.
