STEM professionals are seen as a key strategy to meet the dynamic demands of industries and enhance global competitiveness to be able to confidently navigate the intricacies of a technology-driven world and triumph over future challenges.
It is through this perspective that the RoboMania Club comes to life.

Their strategically designed and fine-tuned robots, representing nearly a year of effort, will compete locally, putting their knowledge to the test and challenging their capabilities.
