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 2023 finals were held on the 12th and 13th of April 2023, stay tuned for the launch of RoboCon 2024!
