Shark Robotics

Welcome to the site for Shark Robotics, the robotics team for Stanborough School. Our team is based in Welwyn Garden City, in Hertfordshire in the UK.

Shark Robotics teams span from Year 7 (11-12 years old) to Year 12 (16-17 years old)  and compete at all levels of robotics competition. Younger students learn the basics of robot design, building and programming in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition, while older students compete at the national and international levels in Vex Robotics – referred to as VRC. Shark Robotics is proud to have recently broken into the highest echelons of national level robotics as a top-flight team and in the upcoming season is looking to qualify for the VRC Worlds Competition in the USA.

In recent years, Stanborough and the Shark Robotics teams have played host to both FLL and VRC tournaments, which we hope to expand in size and scope in this coming year.
