    BHS Robotics Club

    Welcome to the BHS Robotics Club page. This is where you will find information about all things related to robotics.

    Robotics is a fun way to learn engineering, programming and planning skills. In groups you will learn how to organise and participate in various activities.

    We have three types of robots: Vex, Vex IQ and Lego Mindstorms NXT that we use to compete in the VEX robotics and Robocup Junior competitions.

    Regular meetings/practices will be in X8 throughout the week. We will let you know.
