The Wonder League Robotics Competition started in 2015 and has now reached more than 78,000 kids over the last four years. This growing network of coding and robotics teams uses our all-inclusive program to inspire an early love of coding, computer science, tangible learning, and STEAM education.

Through a series of story-based missions, the teams develop problem-solving, growth mindset, and creativity skills while learning to code. Three years ago, we invited international teams to participate and continue to see an ever-growing international presence making the Wonder League a truly global competition.

Students between the ages of 6 and 12 design solutions for real-world science and technology challenges by programming Dash & Dot to solve a series of "missions" provided throughout a 5 month period.

  • A team made up of a supervising adult coach and one to five children
  • Teams in 6-8 & 9-11 age brackets will need a Dash robot
  • A compatible device
  • Teams in 12-14 age bracket will need a Cue robot
  • A 5' x 8' mat of 30cm squares and basic prototyping materials.
  • Internet access to download and upload materials

Complete all criteria for the three rounds of missions and be eligible for the Spring Invitational Round. Mission criteria are provided on the competition website.

Eligibility:
Any kid, anywhere in the world, ages 6-14 as of 12/31/19, can participate. There are three age brackets: 6-8, 9-11, and 12-14. Kids must be the qualifying age for their bracket on the last day in 2019, when registration closes. A team is made up of a supervising adult coach and one or more children. That’s right, kids can compete solo but will need a coach who is 18+ to help with the submission process! For multi-kid teams, each member must be in the same age bracket. Coaches may have multiple teams within the same registration form.
