Soccer-playing robots

Watch more with these video collections:

Bloopers by soccer-playing robots? Yes please. We loved watching the challenges faced by these little technological — and might I add, autonomous — wonders. The above footage is from Robocup 2010 (in Singapore) and 2011 (in Istanbul) from BotSportTV

Next, watch LEGO Bionicle Toa Mata Band and Robot – Mysteries of vernacular.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.
