Emerging champions, OWASS, as they are called are expected to bring the trophy to Africa, Ghana in addition to the many individual trophies they won at the event.

The OWASS Robotic Team at the World Robotic Competition in Detroit, Michigan comprised 5 students and a coach as well as a contingent of passionate Old Boys in the US.
