Supporting the development of our future engineers, computer scientists, innovators, and creators.
We have regional competitions running across Aotearoa in 2024. Each competition includes On Stage, Rescue and Soccer challenges. Check out this map to find your closest competition.
Every year young people from across the nation showcase their robotic skills and creativity. This year's competition will be held in Auckland on August 31st, 2024.

Support for Schools:
We are keen to support schools to take part in RoboCup. We know that some schools lack expertise and some schools lack equipment. We can help with both. Join us in any of the following ways to grow your skills in robotics:
Tuesday, March 12th 7.00-8.00pm - Getting started with RoboCup. This is for schools and teachers who are new to Robocup and with little experience in robotics. We will outline the competition structure and answer your questions.
Tuesday, March 19th 7.00-8.00pm - On Stage - a more in-depth discussion of this section of the competition. Register here.
Tuesday, March 26th 7.00-8.00pm - Rescue - a more in-depth discussion of this section of the competition with the opportunity to ask questions.
Tuesday, April 9th 7.00-8.00pm - Soccer - a more in-depth discussion of this section of the competition with the opportunity to ask questions.
