5 Popular Robotics Competition For Students & Science Enthusiasts In India


As the Indian IT landscape readies itself to embrace industry 5.0, robotics and automation have become the focal point for industries. As the demand for the jobs in the field has been witnessing a steady spike, the number of takers for the courses at the college-levels have increased double in recent times.

As a technology which is all set to shake the industry-floors and workspaces of tomorrow, the curiosity and inquisitiveness have trickled down to young school-going students, with students as young as a six-year-old enrolling in robotics training institutes to master the art.



For this very reason, the number of avenues for students to exhibit their robotics skill, creativity and innovations have increased with time, with these competitions giving away handsome price as a reward for their out-of-the-box thinking.

From engineering institutes to robotics events organised by the Indian STEM Foundation, we take a look at the top five robotics competitions for students.
