These short workshops will give you the skills to get your students involved in RoboCupJunior – the biggest robotics competition in Tasmania! Suitable for students from kinder up to grade 12 – this is a great opportunity to get students involved in a team project, where they will work to design, build, test and program a Lego robot to enter into the Tasmanian RoboCupJunior competition (held on Saturday 19 August at UTAS Launceston campus).
We hope to see you there!
