WRO Japan 2016


In Japan, approximately 1,300 teams from elementary, junior high, and high schools nationwide entered the 2016 WRO regional preliminaries, and 126 teams that won regional preliminaries took part in the national finals held in Yumenoshima, Koto-ku, Tokyo.
Since co-sponsoring WRO, DJK provides venues for the Tokyo preliminary, as well as supporting robot programming workshops for entry-level students.
Our employees have also voluntarily supported workshops and the WRO competitions, finding robot programming quite interesting with those hardworking students.
