RoboCupJunior is one of the leagues in the international RoboCup competition. Its goal is to educate primary and secondary school students through project-based learning.

Students in RoboCupJunior build and program robots that play soccer, navigate rescue scenarios, and perform on stage with humans.

With MATLAB and Simulink, students can develop robot algorithms and test them in simulation. MathWorks provides support for low-cost hardware platforms such as Arduino, LEGO MINDSTORMS, and Raspberry Pi. This allows students to automatically deploy their algorithms to hardware.
