Welcome to RoboCupJunior ACT

Build, Make, Invent, Learn and most of all, Have Fun!

I would like to thankyou for visiting the home of RoboCupJunior ACT.  

This year we would like to build on our 2016 successes! In 2015 and 2016 we had 250+ Students from 24 schools in and around the ACT area compete in the three RoboCupJunior challenges, Soccer, Rescue and Dance.

We would like to thank our ACT supporters ANU CECSSFX and Kidtechnic for their continued support.  Without their support we would not be able to bring you such a sensational event each year.

Next years competition is to be held in August, 2017.  Registrations will open closer to the date (July).  The event is open to all school students. 

Good Luck to all the teams for 2017.  See you at the competition. For more information please see our event page.
