On September 22/23, we held the Australian Championships for RoboCUp Junior. This year we saw over 140 teams and over 400 kids from all over Australia come to Canberra to show off their creations. I am constantly amazed at the ability of these students and what they are able to create. We make it a point to interview every team to make sure that the work is substantially their own (not some well meaning but overhelpful teacher or parent). I spoke to quite a few teams, who despite being in grade 10,11 or 12, knew more than I did after my first year of my Engineering Degree!

Here are a few videos that others took of the event:
