28 teams from many primary schools in the city gathered in the Sports Center of District 8 to enjoy the festival.

This annual Robothon Festival is a robotic playground for primary and secondary students in both Vietnam and neighboring nations in order to boost their studying as well as exploration spirit so that they can gradually master technology while in school. 

 

The festival also aims at introducing the subject of robotic assembling and controlling to pupils, resulting in the fostering of potential science – technology lovers.

 

Contests in the festival were able to identify some champions from the groups of elementary and intermediate levels, all of which come from Le Ngoc Han Primary School in District 1.

 

The Robothon Festival is also held in other cities like Hanoi, the central city of Da Nang, and the southern city of Can Tho, attracting more than 500 participants. Winners in contests of each area will be nominated to take part in the International Robothon Festival organized in China on November 25.
