The competition features various categories, including Future Innovators, RoboMission, Future Engineers, and RoboSports, catering to different age groups and skill levels.

The WRO India Season 2024 will unfold in stages, starting with the virtual championship, followed by regional and national championships, culminating in the international championship in Türkiye.
