RoboCup@Home Educational is a special education program for providing support for new teams in the context of a simplified RoboCup@Home competition. It is oriented to help to form new teams and to prepare them for the main competitions.

RoboCup@Home Educational is an educational initiative that promotes educational efforts to promote access to modern technologies such as computer vision, speech understanding, or machine learning and to boost RoboCup@Home participation and service robot development. The aim is to narrow the technological gap between RoboCupJunior and RoboCup Major leagues. RoboCup@Home Educational activities started in 2015 with various workshops and competitions around the globe. The workshop audiences range from inexperienced high school students to freshmen in engineering programs at university level. In order to provide a soft start, the competitions are blended with preparation workshops. Teams will be assisted remotely in preparation for the challenge with tutorials (possibly webinars) and assignment.

The hardware for the challenge is standardized. 
Robot (TurtleBot2)
3D/Vision Sensor (Xtion/Astra)
Laser Sensor (Hokuyo/RPlidar) 

Other ROS-based platforms are also accepted.  

The organization may have some platforms available at the event depending on the number of registered teams. However, these can be purchased. The information is available at:
