RoboCup – a new Science Fiction movie!?

Posted on February 13th, 2009

Lego, cables and computers; with those instruments, students from the third grade are challenged to win the RoboCup.

Who or what on earth is ‘RoboCup’ !? Well, it’s an international joint project to promote AI, robotics and related field. In Belgium, the University of Brussels is in charge of the organization, assisted by the academy of Gent for the technical support.

The intention is to create and program a robot with certain skills. This competition will end with a ‘grand finale’ at Technopolis.

Because we at Queaso Systems find education an important issue, we decided to sponsor one of the participants: VBS Schellebelle. This way, the students are introduced to the fundaments of programmation and the fascinating world of IT in a fun way.

Let’s hope this competition can be the start for some future colleagues ;-)
