RoboCup Junior Australia (‘RoboCup Junior’ or ‘RCJA’) is a national non-profit that seeks to further STEM education by engaging Primary and Second school students in regional, state and national robotics competitions. RoboCup Junior started in Australia in 1999, and is the largest, widest reaching and longest running robotics competition in Australia.
RCJA’s local, state and national competition events for school age children, and teacher training to support educators in developing the essential skills to engineer, build and program robots that are applied in sport, creatives arts, and rescue/logistics. This event is fundamental in sparking interest in these fields and making it easy to understand and fun.
Our programs continue to grow, and we are accessible for all girls and boys, with a focus on increasing participation from regional and indigenous communities.
Our events are a proven pipeline for children to pursue STEM qualifications and careers.
Without the support of our partners over the last 24 years, RCJ would not be where it is today, a national organisation running 40+ annually across every state and territory in Australia. Our partners understand the importance of investing in developing Australia’s STEM talent of the future and see it as not only an investment in their future students or employees but as a social responsibility to
ensure that Australia develops the skills for a prosperous and sustainable economic future.
To support national growth and regional engagement, RoboCup Junior Australia engaging all organisations in Australia who have a vested interest in developing STEM skills for the future, with the objective of establishing a mutually beneficial partnership agreement for our 2023 National Event, and beyond. We need your support to ensure the event continues to be accessible for students from all educational sectors and backgrounds through low team entry fees.
