WHAT IS IT?
EUROBOT JUNIOR is a European competition of robots open to the participation of children and young people from 8 to 18 years old (students of primary, secondary, robotics clubs, etc.). The objective of participating is to allow an approach to science and technology in an interesting and fun project that consists of the realization of a technical project in which teamwork and the exchange of ideas is developed.
EUROBOT JR follows the same EUROBOT regulations with the exception that in EUROBOT the robots are completely autonomous whereas in EUROBOT JR the main robot is telecontrolled by cable and a self-contained secondary robot can also be used. It is a project of great value for educators since with the participation in EUROBOT JR most of the technical competences of the technology education programs can be developed.
Regarding the competition, the limit of the number of teams that can participate in the international competition, which will be the qualifiers of the national competition of Eurobot Junior Spain, may vary depending on the number of teams participating in the national rankings of the rest of the countries.
Each year the theme of the competition is changed, so that there are new tasks to be done and a new project to address.
The group of young people must design, build and program the robot so that it obtains the highest possible score in each test, taking into account that the main robot is telecontrolled by cable, and may have an autonomous secondary robot.
The Eurobot JR competition highlights values such as fair play, solidarity, the exchange of knowledge and creativity.
It is a very enriching experience, since it is a competition between several countries, you learn other languages and cultures, so you will find a friendly and intercultural environment.
