What is Robo Wunderkind Global Space Adventure Challenge?

The Robo Wunderkind Global Space Adventure Challenge is an exciting competition opportunity for students worldwide. We invite all educational institutions that have Robo Wunderkind* to participate: a panel of expert judges will evaluate students’ projects and the most creative ideas will be rewarded with fantastic prizes.

Our challenge centers around the Space Adventure topic. We live in the 21st century when people can travel to space and land on Mars, and these achievements wouldn’t be possible without great scientists and engineers! With this challenge, we want to encourage children to learn about robotics, coding, design, and new technologies. Our mission is to support young explorers in their path to become great engineers and science pioneers!

*Want to join, but no Robo Wunderkind yet? Contact us at to borrow one (DACH & UK only).

By joining our Space Adventure Challenge, you can only win:

Develop 21st-century skills

Through designing, prototyping, and programming their Space Adventure projects, students will learn to solve real-life problems. Not only will they pick up logical and critical thinking skills, but they will also exercise their creativity to the fullest!

Encourage teamwork and collaboration among students

Students will work in small groups and will learn to collaborate and communicate effectively. By solving problems together, children will have a chance to exercise teamwork and leadership skills.

Join the challenge virtually

We welcome teams from all around the world - our challenge is entirely virtual, and there is no need for travel. Progress at your own pace and submit your projects by July 25th - from anywhere in the world.
