WRO Germany Final in Passau - AMS sponsors 3 teams
On 16 and 17 June, this year's Germany final of the "World Robot Olympaid", an international robotics competition for children and adolescents aged 8 to 19, took place in the Passau Dreiländerhalle. The final in Passau is Europe's largest WRO event and one of the biggest robot events in Germany. 97 teams from Germany and 15 teams from Austria competed to qualify for the world finals in Chiang Mai (Thailand) in November 2018.
Over the past few months, more than 630 teams have participated in the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) in Germany. In more than 27 regional competitions from the beginning of May to the beginning of June, the best 97 teams qualified for the German final in Passau. In the Dreiländerhalle, the teams used their robots to solve tasks related to this year's topic "Food Matters". For each age group, there is a separate course that meets the respective requirement. Accordingly, the teams compete against other teams only within their age group.
As in previous years, AMS sponsors 3 teams from the age groups Elementary (8-12 years) Junior (13-15 years) and Senior (16-19 years). Our teams all three participated very successfully in the Regular Category. Here, the about 25cm x 25cm x 25cm large LEGO robots tackled various tasks on a 3m ² large course, which are thematically based on the seasonal theme. Each competition has a surprise task to which teams can react by making changes to the robot (by building and / or programming) or by some other tactic. Examples include: additional obstacles, additional objects that can be transported or collected. Solving the surprise task is voluntary, but the teams can gain additional points.
Here are the results:
Elementary 3rd Place - Löwenzahn Legoisten with 240 points
Junior 5th place - eli-mi-nator Gang with 350 points
Senior 1st place - NoNameInternational with 410 points
This allowed 2 of our teams out of a total of 15 to qualify for the World Final in Thailand. We are very proud and keep our fingers crossed for the world championship title!

AMS supports young students in the participation at World Robot Olympiad
In September last year AMS supported the Free Primary School “Leonardo” with a LEGO Mindstorms Kit. It was the precondition for participating in the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) and the beginning of two very successful WRO competitions.
On May 28, 2016 the team had to master the regional preliminary round first and qualify with a win for the German finals. The task for Ben, Melia and Hannes, “our” inventor team of the 4th class, was to keep the school clean with a self-made robot. It should replace the red “garbage” blocks by blue stones and bring the red blocks to the landfill. They mastered their task well and convinced in three of four passes with 100 points. Consequently our team secured with a deserved win a place in the German Finals in Ludwigshafen.
On June 18 and 19, the three primary school students competed in the German Finals of the WRO with participants from all over Germany. The managing director of AMS Dr. Bernhard Sünder was present again. After a third place at the end of the first competition day, the color sensor of the robot failed on Sunday and “our” team narrowly missed one of the three qualifying spots for the world final in New Delhi. “They were sad and tears flowed” said Dr. Sünder, who supported the team from the first minute.
We congratulate Melia, Ben and Hannes on a deserved fourth place and look forward to this outstanding achievement!
