Unlike the FLL, RoboCup has the same 3 categories/challenges every year- Soccer, Rescue and Dance. and participants are allowed to use any robots of their choosing.
Here are some Videos of past competitions:
The RCJ @ NY/NJ Regional Event will be held on Sunday February 28, 2010 at the the New York Hall of Science in Queens NY.
The Regional Tournament will be a formal tournament for teams competing in one of the three RCJ challenges -- Soccer, Rescue or Dance, in primary and secondary age categories. The primary age category is for teams where all members are age 14 and under; secondary is for teams where all members are age 14 and over. A winner in each challenge category will be eligible to receive an invitation to the RoboCupJunior International 2010 in Singapore.
