The ME Program was proud to be a major sponsor and supporter of the RoboCUP Junior competition at the Forum Newcastle University on Thursday 18th August. The organisers believe that this is the largest ever regional event in Australia with over 400 competitors. The ME program has provided over 100 new EV3 robotics kits to schools in the Hunter which has assisted in increasing participation from 165 in 2015 to over 400 in 2016. The event has been scheduled to coincide with National Science Week and is part of a suite of events supported by the Hunter Innovation and Science Hub. Well done to the team from the University of Newcastle for organising the event as well as the sponsors, ME Program, MTA, Newcastle City Council, and the UON.
