Robotics is a group which designs and build Vex robots to take part in competitions during the year. The World competition in 2016 was Skyrise. Barabots reached the semifinals in their division at the New Zealand nationals. In the qualifying matches teams are paired randomly and the pair competes against another pair to manipulate objects and place them in scoring zones to gain points. The top teams from the qualifiers then select partners to compete in the finals.
In 2017 the competition was Starstruck and Barabots entered 2 robots
This is a student led group, with Mrs Barrett as the teacher in charge. We meet after school on Wednesday from 3.30 to 4.30 (IQ) and 3.30 to 5.00 (EDR)
There are lots of videos online to help you learn how to build and program
