The WRO India Season 2023 theme is “Connecting the World,” emphasizing the importance of global connectivity and collaboration.
The students/teams can showcase their creativity and problem-solving skills again this year. They will be tasked with presenting an idea, project blueprint and later a working prototype aligned with the theme of “Connecting the World.” This idea or project could involve innovative solutions that foster connections and enhance global communication.
We encourage participants to think outside the box and develop groundbreaking ideas contributing to a more connected and interconnected world.
WRO India Level 2: Virtual Regional Round
Level 2 Virtual Regional Round is the next stage for students who successfully advance from the WRO India National Entrance Test under the Future Innovators category.
In this round, students will have the opportunity to compete in teams. The teams will be tasked with virtually presenting their idea or project blueprint, utilizing research data and presentations to validate their concepts to the judges.
This round is a crucial step in the WRO India journey, where participants showcase their innovative ideas and demonstrate their ability to bring them to life.
WRO India Level 3: Regional round
The students whose ideas are validated by the judges in the Level 2 Virtual Regional Round will have the opportunity to advance to Level 3 of WRO India, the Regional Round.
