The RoboCup Junior USA Competition challenges students up to 19 years old to work collaboratively as a team to design, create, and code robots to solve problems, according to the release. 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.IMG_1242
