RP hosts 2010 World Robot Olympiad

The Philippines will host in 2010 World Robot Olympiad for the first time ever.

Robots of all shapes and sizes from at least 30 countries will try to outsmart and outclass each other during the prestigious international competition.

Mylene Abiva, president and chief executive officer of the Philippine Robotics Olympiad said that after three tries, the country finally won the right to host the international competition.

More than 1,200 foreign students and coaches are expected to participate in the Manila edition of the WRO, according to Abiva, who also heads Felta Multi-Media, Inc., which runs the local robotics contest.

The WRO aims “to bring together young robotics scientists from all over the world to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills through computer technology, basic engineering, mechatronics, and communications,” said Abiva.

It will be “another challenge for local robotics experts to show the world that they can be the best,” added Ruby Cristobal, head of the science and technology culture development program of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

In the past seven years, “the Philippines has won two WRO gold medals, courtesy of robotics entries from FAITH (First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities) in Tanauan City, Batangas and Grace Christian High School in Quezon City. The Philippine contestants also won two silvers and a bronze, Cristobal.

All five medals were bagged in the theme-based “open” category of the contest.

Both Abiva and Cristobal expressed confidence that Filipino students would again win medals in this year’s WRO in Gyeongbuk Pohang, South Korea.

For 2009, the Philippine Robotics Olympiad will be held in September to determine who will represent the country in the WRO in early November in South Korea.

Robotics teams from over 300 public and private elementary and high schools nationwide are expected to take part in the local contest.

The PRO is open to elementary students aged 10 to 12 and high school students 13 to 15 years old.

Preliminary and final judging of entries will be held on Sept. 23 and Sept. 25, respectively, at SM North Edsa Mall in Quezon City.

Last year’s Philippine team was composed of students from Grace Christian College, FAITH, Nemesio Yabut Elementary School, International School Manila, Philippine Science High School (Bicol), and Benigno Aquino High School.

Robotics, a technology that uses computer-controlled robots to perform various tasks, has been integrated into the curriculum of many private elementary and high schools nationwide. Robotics clubs have also been formed in these schools. (

RP wins HSBC Young Entrep Top Prize

The Philippine team of Karl Satinitigan and Timothy Huelva won the “Best of the Best Award” grand prize and a cash prize of HK$100,000 in the HSBC Young Entrepreneur Awards in Hong Kong.

The duo from the Ateneo de Manila University won over other champion teams from Hong Kong (which won the Diamond Award), Bangladesh (which won the Jade Award), Thailand, Malaysia and Brunei.

The YEA is an annual business plan writing competition that challenges young people in Asia to work together to create innovative and commercially-viable business ideas.

The board of judges were led by Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp. Limited CEO Sandy Flockhart, HSBC deputy chairman Laura Cha, DHL Express (Hong Kong) Limited co-founder and Chairman Emeritus Po Chung, McKinsey & Company Hong Kong managing partner Dr. Allen Fung and HSBC Limited head of Global Banking in Asia Pacific Frank Slevin.

Early this year, the six teams from the six countries bested a total of 902 undergraduate college student teams from all over Asia in order to compete here in the regional finals in Hong Kong.

One of the judges, Hong Kong businessman Po Chung, was so impressed with the Philippine team’s presentation and answers to judges’ queries, he surprised the audience by uncharacteristically asking: “Okay, when can I invest?”

Accompanied by the Ateneo’s Gokongwei School of Management Dean Prof. Rudy Ang and HSBC Philippine executives Johanna Garcia and Cat Avelino, the Philippine champion team used the team name “Team Beleavers” and its project of “Areka! Leaf Tableware” is an eco-iconic product using coconut leaves from Quezon province as a proposed replacement for non-biodegradable plastic and Styrofoam food containers in fast-food chains.

The Ateneans were fourth-year BS Legal Management students who just graduated this March.

The closest challenger to the Philippine team was the articulate Hong Kong team comprised of three freshmen students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, with their proposed alginate burgers (named “NuBurgers”) and hoping to supply the USA market with this healthier alternative to traditional obesity-inducing hamburgers. Prof. Rudy Ang said: “I feel like Roger Federer in tennis, because the Ateneo has been representing the Philippines already for five years in this prestigious HSBC competition and it’s only now that we had won. In the Philippine competition this year, our Ateneo students had teams that won the first, second and third places.” In the last six years of this HSBC competition, the Ateneo has represented the Philippines five times while the University of the Philippines had competed here for the country once.

The judges in the Philippine competition in March this year included top business leaders like HSBC Philippines CEO Mark Watkinson, SGV chairman David Balangue, Asian Institute of Management president Francis Estrada, DBP president Reynaldo David, JG Summit Holdings president John Gokongwei, Jr., Ayala Group CEO Jaime Augusto de Ayala, Store Specialists, Inc. EVP Anton Tantoco Huang, publisher Sandy Prieto-Romualdez, Landco Pacific President Alfred Xerez-Burgos and fashion designer Rajo Laurel. (
