Hanoi (VNA) - The 2015 Hanoi Robothon Day for primary school students opened in the capital city on November 7 with participation from 174 pupils from 11 schools’ 56 Robotics teams in Hanoi and the city’s Robotics Centre.

The event was organised by DTT Eduspec Joint Stock Company, and primary and secondary schools citywide.

Participating teams were divided into two groups, competing with their computer skills by giving solutions on ecological preservation topics that simulate deforestation conditions and their global impacts. The event also helps raise pupils’ awareness about the important role forests play in environmental protection.

The 35 most outstanding teams will be selected to attend the international Robothon competition in Ho Chi Minh City in late November.

Hanoi Education and Training Department Deputy Director Pham Xuan Tien said that the event would enhance knowledge and passion for scientific subjects among students. Finding useful ideas that can be applied to life in the future also excites the students, he said.

Since 2013, Eduspec has cooperated with education and training departments, and primary schools in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City to organise Robothon Day to increase the quality of Vietnam’s participants in international Robothon competitions.-VNA
