Abstract

The Vietnamese education system has been continuously improved for the last decades. However, due to the heavy theory-based, the students are losing their study interest and encountering career insecurity. Understanding the linkage between theoretical and practical training, in 2012, Saigon Institute of Technology (SaigonTech) introduced the first SRobot contest. The purpose is to create a programming playground for high school students and to nurture their interest in the field of Information Technology (IT). With the efforts to tackle the technical and organizational problems, SaigonTech's SRobot contest has achieved great success thanks to the governmental support from the Ho Chi Minh Youth Union and Ho Chi Minh City, Department of Education and Training (DOET) and from the student contestants. SaigonTech looks forward to building SRobot into a prestigious place for engineering education that is nationally and internationally acknowledged. We aim at improving students’ interest in technology and career development security.
