National Robotics Competition

Location: The Annex, Science Centre Singapore
The National Junior Robotics Competition is an exciting and unique event organised annually by Science Centre Singapore. This robotics competition encourages students to develop problem solving skills, entrepreneurial skills, creative thinking skills and team spirit among participants. NJRC is about celebrating the process of learning through interactive, meaningful experiences.
Since 1999, the annual National Junior Robotics Competition (NJRC) had hosted over 50,000 participants and 230,000 supporters at the Science Centre Singapore. We truly appreciate the immense support that we have received from the schools, partners and sponsors in nurturing a new generation of students whose interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) may one day improve the lives of people.
As announced by A/Prof Lim Tit Meng during the closing ceremony of NJRC 2016, NJRC will undergo an extensive review to bring it up to date in terms of what students are currently doing in schools and to reach out to a wider range of participants.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce the first iteration of the revamped competition “National Robotics Competition” (NRC). Among the changes are a category for students between 6-8 years of age, a robotic arm hackathon and a category in which science and robotics come together in a very realistic manner! Science Centre Singapore will continue to follow the WRO (World Robot Olympiad) challenge this year as one of the categories. The competition will be held from 4 - 8 Sep 2017 during the September school holidays.
Science Centre Singapore has appointed Duck Learning, an experienced Educational Solutions Firm, as the operational partner for this competition. Duck Learning will be handling all aspects of execution of NRC.
More information regarding the NRC as well as registration and challenge announcement details will be released soon. For any queries, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 67474236.
