Yuvabharathi Public School students took the guidance and advice from the former Indian President Dr.A.P.J. Abdul Kalam before participating in World Robotic Olympiad 2013. Adding up to a total of more than 1200 participants, 392 teams at various levels from 37 different countries have participated in this mega event. There were four different categories, Open category, Regular category, Gen II Football and College Category. Yuvabharathi Public School participated in the Open Category and has secured the 17th position out of 97 competing teams in this category.

Yuvabharathi Public School's theme was "Saving India's Western Ghats through Green Robulation". The project was entitled "Project Forest Loon" which is a development and a protection project. The ultimate aim of this project is to spread awareness about the conservation of a World heritage site, one of the "Hottest hotspots" of biological diversity of the world, the Western Ghats. The three students have initiated the "Green Robolution" which is a very effective venture that helps in afforestation and protecting the wildlife of the Western Ghats from poachers and hunters with the help of a robot.

The students have designed this robot that helps preserve the forests and restore the Western Ghats. The real challenge was students had to build the robot and program it in the competition area within a limited time which is two and half hours. The robot is mobile-operated and GPS controlled.
