RoboCup Junior Workshop Feb 10th 2007

The slides that Betsy showed are here: in a zip file.

We will be hosting a RoboCup Junior Workshop for mentors on Sat Feb 10th at the College of Computing at Georgia Tech from 10:00am to 4:30pm. The RoboCup Junior Competition will be July 2-8th 2007 at Georgia Tech. We hope to have about 50 teams from Georgia take part in the RoboCup Junior competition. If you are interested in attending the Feb 10th workshop please sign up at

The workshop will be in room 1440 and 1456 of the Klaus Advanced Computing Building. See for directions. For hotel information see Hotels near Georgia Tech for 2007. We will provide lunch. Please bring a laptop and a built robot if you can.

At the workshop you will learn more about RoboCup Junior and do some hands-on training on LEGO RIS 2.0 or NXT robots. There will also be hands-on learning about the new software for the NXT, Robolab, and leJOS.

RoboCupJunior is a robotics competition for middle and high school students that provides a consistent challenge from year to year, with very open ended rules. RoboCupJunior includes three challenges: Soccer, Rescue, and Dance.
