“Project Bucephalus” is a Wollongong-based FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) team made up from home-schooled children aged 9-16. Named after the warhorse of Alexander the Great, they were dubbed the 2010 Australian FLL National Champions in their rookie year, and have gone on to represent Australian at the International level in the Netherlands (2011), United States (2012), Australia (2013), and Canada (2014). They were named the Australian Champions for the second time in 2014, and will be representing Australia at the 2015 FIRST World Championships (St Louis, USA). The team is responsible for the creation and mentoring of many Wollongong teams, and have been involved in running robotics activities for children in the Illawarra since January 2011.
The team is currently participating in “FLL World Class”, and getting ready to compete at the 2015 FIRST World Championships (St Louis, USA)! Good luck to our friends and competitors!
