About the KOOV Challenge

The KOOV Challenge is an international robot contest where children are challenged to create different expressions and collaborate with their peers using KOOV's simple blocks and through free-style coding.

The KOOV Challenge is a contest where children meet worldwide contestants, challenge and enjoy together the trial-and-error process of observing, thinking, talking, creating, failing, and thinking again.


There is no "correct answer" in the KOOV Challenge. Any challenger with curiosity and enthusiasm toward science is welcome to join in.

Theme of KOOV Challenge 2020

KOOV Future Concert

- Create cool and “attractive” musical instruments that no one has ever seen before -


In this year's KOOV Challenge, children are taking part in an online music contest. Participants will be asked to 1. create an “attractive” musical instrument with KOOV®︎, then, 2. play songs with it.

Create your original “attractive” musical instrument and combine many different sounds that exist in the world to express your creativity freely through your performance.
