Berthoud Robotics is a leading robotics club in Colorado, qualifying multiple teams at the national and international level.  This year the eight Berthoud Robotics VRC/IQ teams competed at multiple of events, received a variety of awards, placed well in the Vex Driver's Skills and Programming Skills and all 8 teams will compete in their respective Colorado State Championship tournament.

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. These teams performed well against the best teams from the United States and from the World. In the 2017-18 season we are currently sending 1069K to the Create US Open VexIQ Championship and the worlds qualifications will be determined at the two Colorado state competitions where BRC qualified all 8 teams to compete for the available Colorado world spots.

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.
