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 STEM 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.

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.
