The 2016 competition will be held at Burnside High School Auroa Centre on Saturday August 20th.
The timetable is available as a google doc and may be subject to change: https://goo.gl/pAzFwN
The Aurora centre will be open for entries from 8:00am. Please do not arrive any earlier than this. On arrival, sign in at the front desk and collect participation certificates and laynards. Teams also need to hand in media forms. There will be a couple of students who will be doing some filming for Kids' Cam on 'What Now' so make sure Jill Pears is aware of any children who should not be filmed or have their photo taken.
Remember to bring all equipment, including safety checked and tagged (where possible) electrical cords, computers and spare parts for your robots. Please ensure parents are aware they are not allowed in 'pit areas' as the students need to be independent. Also, please remind parents, if necessary, to not use flash on cameras when taking photos. During the day there is a sausage sizzle on the day as well as a cafe selling food and drinks. Please support these fundraising events.
Interviews are scheduled for the morning. These need to run on time as it is a very busy day. Make sure teams are waiting outside the interview rooms (these are behind the stage and may be accessed through the green room) 10 minutes before their interview. It is recommended teams do not take all their props into the interview but they have photos of, and talk about, any props they would like the judges to take particular note of during their performance. Please ensure that teams have a copy of their program (preferably on a computer) ready to discuss with the judges.
Performance times are very tightly scheduled. Please make sure your teams are waiting ready to perform at the beginning of the performance before them. This helps to make the change over between teams smooth. Teams will enter the stage area from one side and exit from another. This will be clear on the day. Make sure students are clear as to whether or not they may want to restart a performance and they need to communicate this clearly to the judges. Music must be emailed to Jill Pears before the competition. This will all be on one computer and the teams will need to have a clear signal to give to the person who is running the music.
With Rescue there are four rounds. The three best marks will be combined to form the final score. During the rounds teams should be nearby the mats until they have had their run during each round. Judges are not able to hunt down teams and if they are unable to find a team during a round, there is a possibility that team will miss out during that round. If there is a tie for the final score, then the time taken is considered.
Even though there are not formal rescue interviews students should be prepared during the day to answer questions about their robot build and program. Robots will also be checked for size constraints.
Junior Soccer will run in the first session and in the second session the Junior teams will have an opportunity to play against the Senior teams. It is not compulsory for the Junior teams to be present in the afternoon.
Please ensure parents are aware they are not allowed in 'pit areas' as the students need to be independent.
I would like to recognise our judges who freely give up their time to support Robocup Junior. This is a very long day for the judges and their ongoing support is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions please contact me and I will endeavour to help.
