A team of high school students from Visayas successfully bags 2nd place as they represented the Philippines in the recent World Adolescent Robotics Competition (WARC).

TechFactors Philippines, led by Coach Jomar Cruz, displayed amazing teamwork and one of a kind interschool collaboration between Sacred Heart Cebu, and University of San Carlos North and South in the competition after their two-week intensive preparation focused on programming, troubleshooting, and designing the robot.

Grade 10 Nicolas Francisco Amor acted as the team captain while Grade 7 students Hernan Herven Morale and Charles Matthew Ty fulfilled the role of project manager and publicity manager.

WARC is an annual international robotics competition that aims to bring together future engineers and technology experts through engaging and collaborative competitions. 27 teams joined the competition representing 12 different countries including the Philippines.

The team was successful in breaking through eliminations and make it to the top 16 and finally placing 2nd out of the twenty seven teams who participated. This marked the Philippines on a global scale as a major contender in Robotics competition.

Techfactors’ advocacy in making learning a great experience continues as they offer innovative and advance Robotics modules and kits that help schools to prepare their students for the future. The Robotek Curriculum features a problem-based learning framework that promotes the development of the student’s 21st skills: critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration to prepare them for the demands of the future learning and working environment.
