Come join us in the Innokas programming and robotics tournament!

The Innokas programming and robotics tournament is an event geared toward schoolchildren, where elementary and middle-school-age children and teens (grades 1-9) compete in five Innokas contests that apply robotics and programming skills: XSumo, Rescue, Dance/theater, Freestyle, and GameDev.

Regional tournaments will be held in March/April, which will determine the participants for the national tournament. Regional tournaments will be held around Finland at regional locations that coordinate the Innokas tournament. The national tournament will be held in May at a location that changes each year. 

The Innokas programming and robotics tournaments have been held since 2003. Hundreds of children and teens participate in the national tournament each year.

The main sponsors for the Innokas 2023 programming and robotics tournament are Enfuce and Finnish National Agency for Education, and the sponsors are Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation, Tekniikan akateemiset TEK, Suomen Automaatioseura ry, Suomen Robotiikkayhdistys, Normet, OP Ryhmä, Tevella and Upknowledge.
