About NRC

National Robotics Competition (NRC), has been an ongoing event organised annually by Science Centre Singapore for the past 20 years with support from the Ministry of Education, various partners and sponsors. NRC has attracted more than 60,000 participants and 240,000 supporters till date.

NRC spurs students interest and innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Students can apply what they had learnt in school textbooks and experience STEM hands on. through interactive and meaningful experiences. NRC encourages students to develop problem-solving skills, entrepreneurial skills, creative thinking skills and team spirit among the participants. This is in line with Science Centre Singapore’s mission “To promote interest, learning and creativity in science and technology, through imaginative and enjoyable experience and contribute to the nation’s development of its human resource”

Following the recent rebranding to NRC, the competition is now a series of the following four tournaments; namely the WeDo 2.0 Junior Challenge, Science Automatica, World Robot Olympiad Challenges and Robot Arm Challenges. These tournaments were conceptualised as an effort to update the competition’s relevance in view of the evolving backdrop as well as to reach out to students of a wider demographics, interests and skills. NRC 2018 reached out to almost 2,200 students across the four tournament categories for the duration of that week.

The competition will be held from 9 – 14 September 2019 during the September school holidays. We look forward to your continued support and we hope to see you at NRC 2019.
