RoboCupJunior is a project-oriented educational initiative that introduces RoboCup to primary and secondary school children. Created in a true cooperative spirit, the RoboCupJunior Educational Competition encompasses not only engineering and IT skills, but extends right across a school curriculum. RoboCupJunior also addresses social development by encouraging sportsmanship, sharing, teamwork, understanding of differences between individuals and nations, cooperation and organisational skills.
The RoboCup Junior Dance is a stunning integration of Science, Technology and the Arts. Participants program their robots to dance to music. Competitors are encouraged to decorate their entries and to motorise robot limb movements, to give their robots real personality.
Students are required to design and program two robots to compete against an opposing pair of robots by kicking an infra-red transmitting ball into their designated goal. Teams have a choice of using two attacking robots or an attacker teamed with a goalie.
