Word Robotic Olympiad
In August 2018 Niños Del Sol Eco School competed in the Open Class at the national LEGO Robotics competition in Costa Rica.
The Open Category is a project based competition. Students create their own intelligent robotics solution relating to the current theme of the season. Teams will present their project and their robot model to a group of judges.
The Niños Del Sol team placed 3rd with their robot and project called Robo Sloth. Our robotic sloth can determine when a fruit is ripe, harvest the fruit and communicate with a land vehicle to pick up and deliver it's harvest.
