RoboCupJunior Victoria

Welcome to RoboCup Junior Victoria. In 2017 we will be conducting regional competitions as well as the State Finals. Details of all competitions and workshops will be added here, when we have confirmation of our date and venues for each event. We will be holding workshops for teachers and mentors new to RoboCup Junior early in the year, details will also appear here.

This year Susan Dixon has stepped down as State Chair after 15 years of dedicated and invaluable work with RoboCup Junior Victoria. We would like to thank Sue for her work over these years and are glad she is continuing on as a committee member and State Dance Chair.

We aim to make this competition as much fun as possible for all students involved, and we are grateful for the support of interested parents and teachers.

Please note, all teams entered into Victorian events are limited to a maximum of 5 students. Schools may enter as many teams as they wish in each event, although some events may have to limit the number of teams due to space restrictions.  Should the number of entries be exceeded, schools with multiple entries may be required to reduce their number of teams for that event. Should this be necessary, mentors will be contacted via email as soon as possible after entries have closed. It is recommended that schools with multiple teams, run in-house competitions to help determine which of their teams are best prepared to attend the official RoboCup Junior events.

If you would like to volunteer or would like to enter this year's competition and don’t know where to start we would appreciate hearing from you.

Contact: Evan Bailey, State Chair, RoboCup Junior Victoria, evan@baileyfinance.com.au

We are very proud to have the support of The University of Melbourne School of Engineering again in 2017.
