Do you have what it takes to build the best robot in WA?
Every year from March to September, students from across the state design, build and code their own robots to compete in an incredible triathlon of robotic challenges. Robots are built entirely by students to dance, play soccer or conduct search and rescue. Workshops and competitions take place across Perth and regional WA throughout the year, culminating in the epic RoboCup Junior WA state event at Curtin Stadium in the first week of August. Winners from the state event progress to the Australian finals, with some teams even going on to compete internationally.
The RoboCup Junior WA state event is presented by Scitech and Rio Tinto, with support from Curtin University and Murdoch University, and platinum national sponsors Modern Teaching Aids.
About RoboCup Junior
Events throughout the year are operated on a volunteer basis by the RoboCup Junior WA Committee. RoboCup Junior is an international project-orientated robotics initiative, empowering students to develop and apply their skills across the combined disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
