Insync Robotics is one of the two teams from Barton Peveril college competing in the 2016 Student Robotics competition. Student Robotics is an annual robotics competition, run by he University of Southampton, that challenges teams of 16-18 year-olds to design, build and present their own fully autonomous robots.

“The student robotics competition is the culmination of all the teams’ work on their robots. After months of prototyping and testing, robots from around Europe will meet in the arena. For details about the game, the scoring method and more, head over to this year’s competition rules.

The competition itself is a multiple day event, around the school Easter holiday. All the teams will meet each other, introduce their robots and see everyone else’s ingenious designs. Even if you are not directly involved, you are welcome to come and spectate.

Teams will first compete in scheduled matches in a league. The best robots will make it in to a knockout. During all of this, teams will have the opportunity to tinker with their robots.

At the end of the knockouts, one team will emerge victorious claiming the trophy. Also, the team whose robot displays the most ingenuity will receive the prestigious committee award.”
