International CoSpace OnLine Challenge – iCooLChallenge® 2016
Summer Season

The iCooLChallenge 2016 (Summer Season) is formed by 3 challenges:

• iCooL May Challenge (Final @ 15 May 2016)

• iCooL June Challenge (Final @ 15 June 2016)

• iCooLChallenge® Grand Final @ 5th July 2016 (Parallel with RoboCupJunior CoSpace Challenge Final, RoboCup 2016)

CoSpaceRobot® is well accepted by students around the world for learning Robotics, Coding, Computatredional Thinking and STEM. CoSpace Rescue Challenge is an official sub-league of RoboCupJunior. It provides a fun and engaging way for young people to develop their computational thinking skills and to get involved in programming and algorithm development.

Having closely followed the rise of E-Sport over the years, it is believed that we can emulate the success of E-Sport in engaging people from a very wide section of society. E-Sport, which unlike other sports gives almost everyone who owns a computer, a chance to actively participate as an active competitor instead of a passive spectator. In order to expose more people to robotics and programming, a succession of monthly International CoSpace OnLine (iCooL) Challenge Series leading up to the online edition of RCJ CoSpace Rescue Challenge at RoboCup 2016 will be organised. The iCooLChallenge® provides an opportunity for students around the world to take part in the RoboCupJunior CoSpace Challenge remotely.

During the iCooLChallenge® Summer Season, the iCoolChallenge Qualifiers will be held in a two months period in May and June, namely iCooL May Challenge and iCooL June Challenge.

During each month’s challenge, the 4 top ranking teams in each age group, namely Primary and Secondary, will be invited to remotely participate in iCooLChallenge Grand Final at RoboCup 2016 ( with the same RCJ CoSpace Rescue mission). By having teams participate in iCooLChallenge remotely, we can increase the global outreach and diversity of the RoboCup World Championship. We will invite 8 teams in each age group to participate remotely the iCooLChallenge Grand Final at RoboCup 2016. Instead of using an accumulative point based system, we will use a high score system to ensure that participants who join in later will not be unfairly penalized. Therefore the results for each month’s challenge will be reset at the end of the month. Should any of the 4 winners (each age group) from the previous month’s challenge place in the top 4 in the latest month, the next highest ranking player, i.e. player ranked 5th will be selected.


Age Group:

• Primary team – all team members must under 14 years old.

• Secondary team – if one member in the team is above 14 and under 19 years old.
