Update: Thank you to Ms. Elia of Princeton High School and to Robocup Jr. USA for a wonderful day at Princeton High School. Ms. Elia would also like to thank her many volunteers. And huge congratulations to the PHS team who will compete in Thailand.
Welcome to RoboCupJunior USA
The RoboCupJunior USA competition challenges students up to 19 years old to work collaboratively as a team to design, create, and code robots to solve problems. The competition is divided into three leagues - Soccer, Rescue, and OnStage.
The robots are fully autonomous, using sensors to explore the world around them and make decisions without human intervention. The competition is open to students with any level of experience, and teams can use any tool or technology they want - from modifying preexisting robotics kits to building everything from scratch.
Winning teams may be eligible to participate in the RoboCupJunior World Championship, which is organized by RoboCup Federation each summer. The 2022 Championship will be held July 11-17 in Bangkok, Thailand. Last year, 36 countries from around the world were represented.
