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

In 2018 the competition is In the Zone for EDR and Ringmaster for IQ
