Proposed 2012 RoboCupJunior, Newcastle Regional Competition
The University of Newcastle, Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment are proposing to host a 2012 Newcastle Regional Junior Robo Cup competition, however we can’t host a competition without dedicated teachers and parents to help run the event.
RoboCupJunior is a project-oriented educational initiative that sponsors local, regional and international robotic events for young students. It is designed to introduce RoboCup to primary and secondary school children, as well as undergraduates who do not have the resources to get involved in the senior leagues.
The junior league’s focus is education. RoboCup is an international effort whose purpose is to foster Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. Visit RoboCupJunior.org.au for more information about the program.
Since 2009 there has been no regional competition held in Newcastle meaning that participating school students have had to travel to the Sydney Regional event. We are calling for expressions of interest from teachers and parents who would like to be involved in the organising committee to coordinate the 2012 Newcastle event.
To help resurrect the event, contact Jenny Taylor on 02 4921 7840 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learn with Lego
Students are invited on campus to take part in a Lego mind storm activity with our postgraduate students and academic staff.
The aim of the activity is to give students an idea about electrical engineering as a discipline and career option, and is suited to students in years 9 to 12.
For more information, or to get involved, contact Jenny Taylor on 02 4921 7840 or email email@example.com.
