DOST-SEI has been leading the Tagisang Robotics since 2011 to arouse the interest of high school students in robotics so that they discover their potentials in the fields of engineering and information technology.

“The potential is something that is always there, especially when talking about the Filipino youth. The only challenge is how we can refine and harness it, and ensure that effective programs are implemented to make it happen. said.

DOST-SEI said that with the new format of the Tagisang Robotics competition, participating teams were allowed to remotely upload their previously tested codes, operate the robot autonomously on site, and complete the task of delivering efficiently. the colored paddles to the designated positions on the playing field. field as soon as possible.

“This new game format heralds an innovative way to deliver technology-based competitions in the context of restrictions in place due to the pandemic. Likewise, it offers a creative solution to the future challenges of running highly engaging competitions despite the presence of remote participants,” the agency said.
