The Days of Robotics in Sochi, held from November 21 to 23 in the Main Media Center, have ended. During these days, according to the organizers, the facility was visited by about 3,000 international participants of the forum and more than 15,000 guests.

The World Robotics Olympiad, which was held as part of the international Robotics Innovation Forum "Days of Robotics in Sochi", was attended by more than a thousand talented children and teenagers who are passionate about robotics from 47 countries of the world. This year, 24 sets of awards were awarded at the Olympics.

Russian young designers managed to win two silver and three bronze medals. All the gold medals went to representatives of Asian countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, as well as young engineers from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Director of Esun Robot Association, Chairman of the Advisory Board of the World Robotics Olympiad Johnson Jan (Taiwan): «We were struck by the scale of the Sochi facilities where the WRO took place! And, most importantly, despite such large sizes of sites, everything is located very conveniently and very close to each other. I would like to thank Deputy Minister of Education and Science Veniamin Kaganov for choosing the venue, who recommended holding the event in Sochi, and not in Moscow, as previously assumed.»

The closing ceremony of one of the world's major events in the field of education and high technologies was attended by Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Arkady Dvorkovich, Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation Dmitry Livanov, Federal Minister of Communications and Mass Communications Nikolai Nikiforov and Vice Governor of Krasnodar Krai Galina Zolina.

In his address to the forum participants, Arkady Dvorkovich thanked everyone who supports young talents and promotes the development of intellectual abilities among young people. «Russia will support such development. The Russian government is taking all possible measures and allocating significant resources to ensure that our young people, our leading engineers, scientists, a whole generation of our people can make life better both in Russia and in the world together with you,» he said.

In a solemn atmosphere, representatives of Russia handed over the flag of the World Robotics Olympiad to a delegation from Qatar - this country will host the international competition of young technicians and designers next year.
