HCM CITY — More than 500 primary and secondary school students in Hà Nội, HCM City and Đà Nẵng will take part in the annual Robothon Contest starting on Sunday.

The theme this year is the “Internet of things”, a current technological trend globally, and candidates will make robots and programme them to collect and deliver data.

The contest will be organised by the local education departments together with DTT-Eduspec Joint Venture.

It will be held in Đà Nẵng first and then in Hà Nội and HCM City on November 5 and 6.

The contest was first held in 2003. —VNS
