Abstract

This paper presents the experience of US teams that participated in RoboCupJunior World Championship in 2013. RoboCupJunior, an educational robotics initiative aims to enhance learning through educational robotics competitions around the world. RoboCupJunior is a division of RoboCup, a robotics initiative that aims to promote Robotics and AI research, by offering publicly appealing, but formidable challenges. RoboCupJunior has three distinguished leagues – Soccer, Rescue and Dance, which attract students from all over the world. RoboCupJunior periodically conducts self-study of the impacts that RoboCupJunior has on participating students’ learning through a questionnaire. But it has never conducted a study to hear personal accounts of participating students, more in depth, on their experience and learning through the experience. This paper reports a pilot study of teams from US participated in RoboCupJunior 2013 competition and discusses the results that this study shows.
