RoboCon is a free and accessible robotics competition aimed at GCSE students run by the Robotics Society at Hills Road Sixth Form College.

We provide a kit containing all the equipment necessary to build a simple robot, including our BrainBox and a laptop that you can use to program it. Teams are encouraged to use this kit as inspiration to create a robot as simple or complex as they would like.

No previous experience is required, and we provide support throughout the year through our kick-off event and various tech days.

The RoboCon 2024 competition was held on the 10th and 11th April. Read all about it here!
RoboCon 2025 is just around the corner! With a new game and theme to be decided in September. Sign up for RoboCon 2025 here!
