This one day workshop for teachers and students will cover the rules of the competition, the basic engineering skills required to build strong, stable and robust robots that can play soccer as either a StrikerBot or a GoalieBot. The day will finish with robot soccer games between the various groups who attend. Teachers will be provided with a workbook covering the Australian Curriculum links and a scope and sequence plan for teaching robot soccer as a classroom unit.
