World Robot Olympiad is a global robotics competition dedicated to science, technology and education. Its mission is to help young people develop their creativity and problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way.

 SARAO has been running the Robotics Schools Program in the Karoo since 2016. The aim is to develop and inspire an interest in STEM skills in the schools around the development of the MeerKAT radio telescope, a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array.

 In May this year Carnarvon High School represented South Africa in the FIRST Lego League in Morocco.
