Buddhist Wong Wan Tin College
Robofest World Championship 2018 & Odyssey of the Mind 2018
For the purpose of inspiring students to reach their greatest potential, Buddhist Wong Wan Tin College provide opportunities to students to take part in extra-curricular activities and competitions in different domains. Over the years, their students have achieved impressive results in Robotic Competitions and the Odyssey of the Mind Hong Kong Regional Tournament. This year, they have 22 students of Robotic Team and Odyssey of the Mind Club, were qualified to represent Hong Kong to participate in Robofest World Championship 2018 and 2018 Odyssey of the Mind in the United States. However, most of the students are come from low-income families, and the costs of participating the competitions in U.S were imposed their family burdens. In light of this, Ten Percent Donation Scheme Foundation donated HK$50,000 to support the cost of their competition.
Lastly, the students did not disappoint us. They won the First Runner-up Prize in the “Odyssey of the Mind 2018 World Finals”, and the Champion (Advanced Group) in the “Robofest 2018 World Championship”, which bringing the honor to Hong Kong. We hope the students could realize their potential with this opportunity, able to meet people from all over the world, broaden their horizons and stimulate their interest in STEM. Also, apply the knowledge and skills on their studies or work, and contribute to the society in the future.
