Welcome to Robocup Junior ACT


Due to the situation with COVID-19, the ACT Committee has had to make the tough call to cancel the 2020 Regional Event. We are working on some smaller events and online based competitions to keep challenging you and to help prepare all the teams for the 2021 events. Stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page for more info on these challenges. We hope to be able to bring our events back bigger and better than ever in the future when it is safe for us to do so.

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 are looking forward to helping expand robotics education and opportunities for students to learn about engineering and programming by continuing our competition and expanding to more workshops and events. Stay tuned for some more info coming soon!

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

The 2019 Event will be on again in September (see below).  Registrations will open closer to the date (June).  The event is open to all school students. 

Good Luck to all the teams for 2019.  See you at the competition! For more information please see our event page.

You will find information on how to compete in all the events in RoboCup Junior in event webpages. In the Resource Centre you find tips for your robots and constructing equipment. If you would like some 'hands on' help, volunteers will come out to your school and give you a hand. There are also opportunities to attend workshops. These are run on a demand basis so if you are interested please contact us.
