The National Robotics Competition was first organized by the JCEE in Jordan back in 2005. 

The JCEE, which holds the license for these events, also hosted the Arab Robotics Championship for three years in a row.  The contest focuses on the scientific aspects of technology, engineering and mathematics by requiring the students to build and design and program robots made out of Legos that are capable of performing specific tasks on tables designed to meet international specifications.

The JCEE, which was founded in 1998 to focus on the use of advanced educational technology to develop innovative curricula and interactive training programs for students, teachers and administrators in Jordan looks forward to hosting the upcoming National Robotics Competition in March.
