Berthoud Robotics is a VEX Robotics club loosely affiliated with Berthoud High School and Turner Middle School. In the 2017-18 robotics competition season, Berthoud Robotics hopes to field at least 4 VRC and 4 IQ teams with approximately 50 members. Berthoud Robotics is a leading robotics club in Colorado, qualifying multiple teams at the national and international level.  Last year the eight Berthoud Robotics VRC/IQ teams competed at a multitude of events, received a variety of awards, placed well in the online Driver's Skills and Programming Skills competition and all five competed in the Colorado State Championship.

Following up on our 2015-16 season where 1069H competed at the VexIQ Worlds Championship, BRC in the 2016-17 season sent 1069H and 1069K to Worlds. In addition, we sent 1069F to the Create US Open High School Championship. All the teams performed well against the best teams from the United States and from the World.

The VEX Robotics Competition is the longest established middle and high school robotics program with more than 16,000 international teams from 40 countries playing in over 1350 tournaments worldwide.
