Considering the situation created from COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the protective measures set to prevent the spread of the virus, the scenarios that are taking place in schools, the Robotics Competition has no possibility to be organized in its original format this academic year.
Within KML OPEN for the 2020/21 season we planned to organize five (5) rounds, but as a result of the current circumstances in Kosovo and around the world, the fifth round (5) or the grand finale which was planned to be organized as a physical round where all the teams could gather in one place and compete physically, has been canceled.
Kosova Makers League has decided that the fourth round will also be the final round and it will determine the winners (from both cycles 1-5, 6-9) for this academic year.
So, the fourth (4) / Final round of KML Open which will be published during the month of April, will determine the winners of the Robotics Competition.
As you know, the reward for the winning teams is their participation in the Regional Robotics Competition that is usually held in Croatia, and then if enough points are collected, the participation in the World Robotics Competitions held in China.
Due to travel restrictions and health risk to participants, we cannot participate in the above-mentioned competitions.
However, for this year within the Robotics Competition, Kosova Makers League will reward the two winning teams with two (2) laptops for each respective team from the cycle (1-5) and (6-9) in order for the laptops to be used by the students for different kinds of educational activities.
