Karachi Schools Excel at Robotics Olympiad  in Denmark

Children from the Dawoodi Bohra community represent Pakistan at the World Robotics Olympiad in Odense, Denmark.

Two teams from Karachi, Badri High School (BHS) and Saifiyah Boys High School (SBHS), competed at the World Robotics Olympiad (WRO) Invitational Tournament in Odense, Denmark in September 2023.

The BHS team comprising Sakina Ammar, Ajab Aliasghar and Aliasghar Ibrahim competed in the Junior Future Innovators category. Their project was named ‘Roadside Rescue: Your Savior at Every Roadside.’ The project devised a conveyor belt system running alongside main roads to assist stranded motorists by swiftly transporting their broken-down vehicles to the nearest service station.

The SBHS team, which included Mohammed Hasnain, Husain Kagzi and Burhanuddin Chairman, competed in the Robo Mission Junior Category with their project: ‘Aqua Purifier: A Sustainable Solution to Water Pollution.’ It tackled the critical issue of water pollution by developing a cost-effective and eco-friendly water purification system using natural materials.

“STEM (Science, technology, education and mathematics) education is essential for preparing students to solve the challenges of the future,” said Rashida Adnan, mentor to the Badri High School team at the WRO Invitational Tournament. “The skills that students learn in STEM classes, such as critical thinking, problem-solving and innovation, will be essential for success in the workforce of tomorrow.”

The participation of both schools in the tournament is a testament to their commitment to STEM education and is a source of pride and inspiration for the local community. 

The WRO is a global robotics competition whose mission is to help young people develop their creativity and problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way.
