“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 Australia at the International level in the Netherlands (2011), United States (2012), Sydney (2013) and Canada (2014). They are responsible for the creation and mentoring many Wollongong teams, and have been involved in running Robo Camp and Robo Club activities for children in the Illawarra since January 2011.
The team is currently getting ready to compete in 2014-15 FLL season, dubbed “FLL World Class”. For the first time, it seems likely we’ll be doing so at our own local Regional tournament! Good luck to our friends and competitors!
