Through participating and representing the kingdom, the Ministry of Education aims to develop the students’ skills in five areas.

They include the future innovators' category to build smart robotic solutions, the robot tasks category to design and program robots with an algorithm to solve all possibilities of random assignment of tasks; and the robot sports category to compete among teams in tennis.

The categories also include the Future Engineer category to combine engineering design, programming skills, and artificial intelligence to build a self-driving car model, in addition to the Virtual Robot Challenges category, which aims to develop students’ technical skills through robot programming.
