Representing Vietnam, GATE students competed in hardest category of World Robot Olympiad 2022
Recently, at Messe Dortmund (Germany), the Vitamin R and AFF teams consisting of 6 students from the GATE Center (Vinschool Gifted and Talented Education Center) won the Bronze Prize in the Final Round of the WRO – World Robot Olympiad 2022 – after competing against 363 other teams from 73 member countries of the World Robot Association.
During the Final Round, Vitamin R and AFF were the only two teams representing Vietnam among 32 international teams in the “Future Innovators” category for high school teams – considered as the most challenging category of the Olympiad – including 3 sub-categories: Robots at Home, Robots in Rescue, and Robots in Healthcare. The Vinsers successfully applied their knowledge in engineering science, mathematics, as well as robot design, assembly and programming skills to research and find solutions to real-world problems:
- With the Automatic Infectious Medical Support project, the Vitamin R team deployed the idea of using AI technology to build an automated drug dispensing system for patients with infectious diseases, in order to improve the quality of medical care in quarantine and isolation areas, and to optimize human resources, work productivity and reduce errors.
- With the Automatic Fire Fighter project, the AFF team implemented the idea of designing robots to help with firefighting: produce fire detection and warning in time, support basic fire fighting, and automatically handle unsuccessful fire fighting situations. The project aims to minimize consequences of fire emergencies and optimize emergency fire fighting systems in households.
With such creative ideas, Vinschool GATE Center students made a strong impression on the judges. The Olympiad was also an opportunity for Vinsers to further appreciate and learn about the application of science and technology in solving real-life problems.

World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is an annual robotics competition for teenagers around the world. Here, contestants will apply knowledge in a variety of fields, ranging from science and technology, mathematics to robot programming and assembling skills to solve problems presented by the Organizing Committee in creative ways. First held in 2004 in Singapore, the WRO has attracted more than 26,000 teams from more than 65 countries including the US, Germany, Russia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore.
