RERO Annual Championship (RAC) was launched in 2016 as a beginner-friendly platform to introduce robotics and coding to primary and secondary school students. This annual competition is organized by rero EDUteam, the education arm of Cytron Technologies, with support from the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).

Introductory workshops and complete learning modules are provided to equip teachers to guide their students who are just beginning to explore robotics and coding. With this, it is hoped that more students will have the opportunity to be involved in the field of robotics/coding . It is our vision is to bring robotics and coding to the masses - whereby every child who is keen to learn is given the opportunity.
