What is Student Robotics?
Student Robotics is an annual robotics competition that challenges teams of 16-18 year-olds to design, build and present their own fully autonomous robots. It is free to take part and we exist to enthuse, excite and encourage a real-world approach to engineering.
The SR Season
The season begins around the end of October with the Kickstart event. Throughout the season teams are supported by mentors and regular Tech Days. This all culminates in a two-day Competition in April.
You can view the planned dates for upcoming events on the key dates page.
Teams will be introduced to the challenge, the Kit and will be set a series of small challenges to familiarise themselves with the Kit.
Teams will be invited to attend multiple Tech Days throughout the season where many mentors will be on hand to help them with any troubles.
Teams come together for a two-day robot spectacular. Here, their robot will be pitted against other teams' robots to compete for the coveted Student Robotics trophy.
Not only are we always looking to recruit more teams, we are continuously striving to expand our ever growing group of industry and university mentors. Mentors play a key role in a team's development and learning. As a mentor you would help guide a team through their robot building journey, from Kickstart to Competition.
