The Malta Robotics Olympiad (MRO) is the largest robotics and technology event in Malta.
In 2018 we will be celebrating the 7th edition of this annual event which is organised by the Ministry for Education and Employment under the Management of the MRO Committee made up from: James Catania (chairman), Keith Galea, Keith Aquilina, Josmar Borg , Karen Micallef, & Eric Montfort.
A non-profit event, which has grown organically every year, and 2018 will see the continuation of this fantastic,high-standard event that took place at MFCC Ta’ Qali in 2017.
The main objectives of this event are to bring the students and public closer to technology in education, to experience investments in a hands-on manner and display the best the island has to offer in technology and robotics as well as being a STEM popularisation event at its core.
This event is only possible with the financial support of our sponsors.
Without you, this event would not be possible and we thank you from beforehand for taking theme to consider the MRO as part of your organisations’ mark marketing & CSR plan.
MRO 18 IN A NUTSHELL
Whilst MRO17 was a huge success with an unprecedented 13,000 visitors , however, there is always room for improvement.
Following feedback from visitors and exhibitors, the MRO will be spread over 3 days from Friday till Sunday.
This year the MRO will be kept more concise and oﬀer more targeted events, the MRO SUMO CHALLENGE which is the largest robotics competition in Malta will still take centre stage. However the addition of the DIYBOTS national competition as well as the primary robotics challenges will bring a much needed hands-on robotics approach to competing in the MRO.
For the ﬁrst time, the exhibitors will be allowed to sell during the event. This is only being allowed since most of the exhibitors at the MRO are too small to have a store-front hence we wouldn’t like to take the opportunity away from them to make full use of the MRO under very strict conditions.

THE MRO WILL STILL BE A FREE ENTRANCE EVENT.
