Berthoud Robotics is a VEX Robotics club loosely affiliated with Berthoud High School and Turner Middle School. In the 2015-16 robotics competition season, Berthoud Robotics has 4 teams with approximately 30 members. Berthoud Robotics has become a leader in Colorado, qualifying multiple teams at the national and international level. Last year the 5 Berthoud Robotics teams competed at a multitude of events, received a variety of awards and competed in the Colorado State Championship. In addition, the club had multiple entries in the Vex Online challenges and made the top 10 in the world for the game animation competition.
The VEX Robotics Competition is the largest and fastest growing middle and high school robotics program with more than 12,000 teams from 33 countries playing in over 1000 tournaments worldwide.
This year's game VEX Nothing But Net is the first ball launching competition ever attempted in VEX VRC. The game video, instructions, manuals and other useful information can be found at VEX NBN. Students, with guidance from their teachers and mentors, aim to build the most innovative robots possible and work together with randomly and chosen alliances to obtain the most points. In addition to just having a great time and building amazing robots, through their participation in the VEX Robotics Competition and their work within their team, students will learn many academic and life skills.
New to Berthoud Robotics in the 2015-16 season is the addition of two Middle School VexIQ teams (1069G - Gravity and 1069H - Mainframe Meltdown). Each team consists of 8 students. We look forward to this new step for the club and welcome all the new students and coaches.
