Wonder League Robotics Competition

The Wonder League Robotics Competition (WLRC) started in 2015 and has now reached more than 86,500 kids over the last six 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.

"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."
Frank Tappen
Coach of The Pink Eagles, 2016-17 winners
“I can't believe how much we learned this year. The growth of our team was enormous. The children absolutely love participating in the competition. They learned to work together, listen to other ideas, speak up, share, problem solve and persevere and never give up. This activity was my favorite part of my year too!”
Lisa Morgan
Coach from MI
“It’s been such a cool adventure! Thank you so much for hosting this awesome opportunity! As a long time educator, I have honestly never witnessed such determination, grit, persistence, perseverance, collaboration, and problem-solving skills in a group of kids like this in my career! It was magical to be a part of and a great honor to have been a coach! I, myself, learned a tremendous amount from the children!”
