Western Australia's second ever Robot Competition! This FREE event is just like watching your favourite footy team compete... instead it's a team of robots!

This event is based on the FIRST Robotics Competition held across the world every year.

"FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics community that prepares young people for the future through a suite of inclusive, team-based robotics programs for ages 4-18 that can be facilitated in school or in structured afterschool programs. Boosted by a global support system of volunteers, educators, and sponsors that include over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies, teams operate under a signature set of FIRST Core Values to conduct research, fundraise, design, build, and showcase their achievements during annual challenges. An international not-for-profit organization (501(c)(3)) founded by accomplished inventor Dean Kamen in 1989, FIRST has a proven impact on STEM learning, interest, and skill-building well beyond high school. (FIRST, 2021).

"The Robotics Competition challenges teams of high school students to build industrial-size robots, under strict rules and limited time and resources, to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community," (FIRST, 2021).

We want WA students to have these opportunities and it's about time Western Australia has their own Robot Competition and so The Western Australian Robotics Playoff's (WARP) is born.

This is the third year of WARP, and in 2023 it will be even bigger and better, with 20 robotics teams participating".

Come on down to watch teams of robot alliances play a tough and strategic game with strict rules but a free-flowing style!
