With its robots named To Bee, Not To Bee and Bee of Vienna, ITU ARIGE Team was eligible to enter the final category leaving its rivals behind.

Leaving their rivals behind with their high performance, the robots were the owners of the first 3 degrees in the final, too. These robots, designed by youth from ITU who sang our national anthem proudly in the award ceremony, collected and decomposed the recyclable waste materials such as glass, plastics and paper in the field. Considering that resource allocation and separate collection are the most important steps in recycling process, these robots will be very beneficial for us.


We congratulate our students who represented ITU and our university in the best way and we wish them continued success.
