Seven youngsters will be going to Indonesia to compete in the World Robotic Olympiad.

These were the seven who took top honors Sunday in a competition organized by the Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología y Telecomunicaciones. There were 500 participants and 125 individual teams.

Winners in the 15- to 19-year-old category were  Marlon Molina, Moisés Méndez and José Gabriel Rojas from the Universidad de Costa Rica.

Julien Brandt and Andy Murillo of the  Colegio Nueva Generación took the honors in the 13- to 15-year-old category.

The 7- to 12-year-old winners were  Mariana Murillo and Juan Carlos Brenes of  Escuela Jesús Jiménez de Cartago

They will be going to Jakarta in November.

Ms. Murillo and young Brenes also were winners last year when only 200 students participated, said the ministry.

The older students engaged in increasingly more sophisticated tasks with the robots  they created.
