WRO Japan 2017

 


In Japan, 1,862 teams (approximately 400 teams up year-on-year) from elementary, junior high, and high schools nationwide entered the 2017 WRO regional preliminaries. 144 teams that won regional preliminaries advanced to the national finals held in Yumenoshima, Koto-ku, Tokyo.
DJK has supported the WRO Japan and relevant activities. Since co-sponsoring the WRO Japan, we have provided venues for the Tokyo preliminary, as well as supported community-based robot programming workshops.
Our employees have also voluntarily supported those workshops and the WRO competitions, finding robot programming quite interesting with those hardworking students.
