President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino, III to showcase the robots that they presented during the recently concluded 2010 World Robot Olympiad (WRO) held at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, Philippines.

The President, inspired by the precocious and talented young robotics students, vowed that he would do everything to support science and technology. In his speech he made a very challenging statement, “When you are on top, you can only do two things: stay on top or deteriorate; strive harder in the field of science and technology.” This statement challenged the students to strive harder in the field of robotics as well for the glory of God.
