Our 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 & 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.

This year’s competition is set to launch in early October. Sign up now to be kept in the loop as we roll out more information for this year’s Wonder League.

The Origins

The Wonder League Robotics Competition started in 2015 and has reached more than 24,000 kids in just two years. This growing network of coding and robotics clubs 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 through learning to code. Last year, we invited international teams to participate, and Team X-PLODE, the 6-8 age category grand prize winners, hailed all the way from Bangalore, India.

The grand prize winners for ages 9-12 was an all-girls team, The Pink Eagles, from Hartland, Michigan, who gained national notoriety for their dedication and persistence.

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 of learning and perseverance that excited our entire community.
