International Robotronics Challenge I School League 2016-17

There is nothing less amazing than to see how children can tackle the real world problems skilfully. International Robotronics Challenge (IRC) League , now entering its 7th year, is an International platform where students get to test waters and prove their mettle in this space through Robotics. 

Last 6 years have been an incredible journey for us with plethora of learnings and memories. Past IRCs have helped us make this challenge bigger and better. After organizing Internationals in USA and Singapore respectively since last 2 seasons, this year's International will be held at the land of Technology Superpower - CHINA!

IRC League 2016-17 will witness 13 Qualifiers all across India to choose the final 40 teams at the 3 levels for the Nationals to be held on 10th December 2016 at The Heritage School, Gurugram. The winners of the Nationals will get to win a sponsored trip abroad and compete with the International teams.
