Date: 5 – 7 April 2019
Venue: Singapore Polytechnic
Jointly organised by Singapore Polytechnic and Science Centre Singapore. The competition consists of the Robo Soccer event and Robo Rescue to name a few. The Robo Soccer as the name alludes to, requires participants to build soccer robots to score points and defend their goal post. The Robo Rescue event requires participants to navigate obstacles like bumps, slopes and bottles. All in the bid to mimic rescue robots. All competition missions are revealed beforehand and robots can be built from any platforms.

APYRC consists of many events like the Sumo Robot, Tug-of-War and Mission Programming. Most events are carried out in the knock out format. As the competition format is less demanding it is a good introductory competition for newcomers to the robotic competition scene.

NRPC is a LEGO Robot competition similar to FLL. Participants must complete the numerous missions spread across the playfield within 2.5 minutes. They are able to change their attachments and programs once their robot returns to the start base. The focus of this competition is on strategising on how best to achieve multiple missions using the fewest attachments and runs.
Date: Preliminaries: Between 10 July and 31 July 2019
Final Rounds: 2 Aug 2019 (Friday)
Venue: Victoria Junior College
Organised by VJC, DSTA and DSO, this competition has 2 main events, the Exploration Challenge and the Autonomous Challenge. The Exploration Challenge requires participants to control 3 separate robots to complete a mission. Each team will have to build and prepare 3 robots either using LEGO Mindstorms or VEX platform. The Autonomous Challenge requires the robot to be pre-programmed to complete a challenge (e.g. scanning and shifting of cubes in a certain order). All missions and rules are released a few months before the competition date. As the challenge is significantly more difficult for LEGO based robots, it is advised to participate in this competition using the VEX platform.

Venue: Science Centre Singapore, Annexe Hall
Organised by Science Centre Singapore and Duck Learning, NRC is the Singapore round of the World Robot Olympiad (WRO). This is another prestigious LEGO Robotics Competition where participants get sponsored to travel overseas to compete in the WRO if they manage to win the Championship Award or Best Robot Performance. The competition format is a single-run mission that requires the robot to complete a certain set of objectives to score points. The mission challenges are usually announced 5 to 6 months ahead of the competition date.
NJRC 2016 Championship Award (Primary Sch Category)
Technically not a Singapore based competition, however Singapore students that perform well in NRC will get to represent the country in this international competition.
