RoboCup Junior Queensland

Welcome to RoboCup Junior Queensland (RCJQ). We are a committed and experienced group with a passion for Robotics and Education, and we believe RoboCup Junior is the best way to work with both. RoboCup Junior is open to students studying at a Primary School or Secondary School (or the equivalent e.g. home schooled). We encourage students to think creatively to develop solutions, mostly as members of a team of 2 or more, to the RoboCup Junior Challenges in OnStage Peformance, Rescue, and Soccer. Details of these challenges and their divisions can be found here.

Further details of these events can be found on the Queensland workshops page or each individual event's page or through the links in the calendar.
