The Wonder League Robotics Competition (WLRC) is an international coding and robotics competition for future tech leaders and innovators. Almost 8,000 teams participated in the WLRC competition from 69 countries. Only 12% of teams qualified for the International Invitational Round. Teams participated in five rounds of intensive missions over a five-month period to compete for a chance to earn a spot in the Wonder Workshop sponsored International Invitational Round. Through a series of story-based missions, the teams developed problem-solving, growth mindset, and creativity skills through coding and programming. The LARC Robotics Teams designed solutions for real-world science and technology challenges by programming their robots.
The Long Beach teams are coached by Long Beach teachers Dr. Caitlin Fuentes King and Dr. Justin Sulsky.
