The MatataWorld Robotics Competition (MWRC) is a global robotics event seeking to improve children's all-round skills through fun and challenging activities.
In 2020, the MWRC Organizing Committee was initiated and established by China, Japan, Singapore, and Canada to promote the development of STEAM education for preschool children around the world. Offering challenging tasks, the event is designed to increase children's self-confidence in science and technology, and help them apply what they learn to solve real-life problems so as to explore and create a new world of their own.
Scientists predict that as the world's population grows and humanity over-consumes the planet's resources, the Earth has only enough energy to sustain human life for 300 to 500 years.
Thereafter, humanity will have to abandon Earth and migrate to other planets. For now, the only planet that humans have the best hope of migrating to is Mars. Therefore, space exploration is bound to become a compulsory course for humans in the future.
Can't you wait to learn more about the wonders of the universe? Matatalab is already waiting for you to discover the secrets of space with it. Get going and find out how to get to space with Matatalab!
