RoboCup Junior WA

Every year, from March to September, primary and secondary students from across WA design, build and code their own robots. Then they put them to the test by competing in an incredible triathlon of robotic challenges

It’s as wonderful as it sounds and, as the state’s biggest annual robotics competition, it shouldn’t be missed.

Workshops and competitions take place across Perth and regional WA throughout the year, culminating in the epic RoboCup Junior WA state event at Curtin Stadium in the first week of August. It’s here you’ll see robots give on-stage performances, play soccer and conduct mini search and rescue operations. For real.

Established in WA in 2002, RoboCup Junior is a partnership between Scitech and Rio Tinto, with added support from platinum national sponsors Modern Teaching Aids.

With 200 teams, encompassing around 600 students from 50 metro and regional schools each year, it’s mechanical mayhem. So, what are you waiting for? Sign up and get ready to exterminate (or be exterminated).
