The 16th School Robotics Competition kicked off Sunday with the participation of over 700 teams representing more than 200 public and private schools nationwide with an increase of 35% participation compared to 2023.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by HE Minister of Sports and Youth Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed al-Thani, Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Affairs at MoEHE Maha Zayed al-Ruwaili, alongside a host of officials and departments' directors.

HE the Minister toured the sections of the 7th scientific exhibition associated with the competition which showcases the creative innovations of the participating students.
