In 2018, the 12th Tencent Cup VEX Robotics Asia Championship kicked off in Macau. The VEX Robotics Asia Championship is one of the largest, most influential and authoritative robotics competitions in the Asia Pacific region. The competition was sponsored by the Asian Robotics Alliance, and jointly hosted by Shenzhen Tencent, China Travel Service (Macao) Limited and Dongguan Bosi Electronics & Technology, attended by more than 2,000 participants comprising 450 outstanding teams from 9 countries and regions in Asia Pacific.
The opening ceremony was held at 9:30 am on December 1st. The President of the Macau Robotics Development Association, Zhou Zhongyu, and the Chairman of the Asian Robotics League, Liang Zhongming, and the Chairman of the China Region, Zeng Xinglong, attended the ceremony. This year's Asian Championship was once again held in Macau ever since it was last time held in Macau in 2013, with the number of participating teams increasing and the design scope expanding. The fact that the number of both teams and participants exceeded that in last year has demonstrated that the society pays more attention to robotics education and the healthy growth of young people. The VEX Robotics Asia Championship fosters adolescents' interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by providing an interactive competitive platform for designable and programmable robots. Through providing practical experience and idea-sharing community, It also helps enhance students' scientific literacy, cultivate students' innovative spirit and practical ability and strengthen students' practical problem-solving ability and teamwork spirit. At the closing ceremony on December 3rd, Mr. Fang Liqun, Chairman of the Macau CTS, was invited to give a speech and present the prizes to the winners.
