Welcome to RoboCup Junior South Australia (RCJSA). The focus of RoboCupJunior is the development of teamwork skills as well technical skills in an environment of participation, fun and excitement. RoboCup Junior is open to students studying at a Primary School or Secondary School (or the equivalent e.g. home schooled). We aim to make our competition fun and competitive through encouraging teamwork and sharing of ideas. 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, Rescue (line and maze), Soccer and Sumo using a range of platforms (e.g. EV3 / NXT / Arduino / Mbot etc.)
We are always grateful for the support of parents, teachers, schools, students, past students, interest groups and RCJA who help to make the competition a continued success.
If you are a new school looking to get into STEM or Robotics in a Robocup Junior setting, we can assist you with anything you need. All of our documentation can be found on the website which are linked to the National Curriculum.
If you would like to be an event sponsor or are interested in supporting RCJSA please contact us.
In addition, if you would like to host a workhop or have us come and support your school / group with a workshop, let us know and we can arrange something.
