We challenge teams of 16 to 18 year-olds to design, build and develop autonomous robots to compete in our annual competition. After announcing the year's game, we give teams six months to engineer their creations. We mentor teams throughout this time, as well as supply them with a kit which provides a framework they can build their robot around. Thanks to our sponsors, we provide this all for free to our teams.
As a community of engineers and educators, we are entirely focused on our mission. We measure our effectiveness on the experience we provide to students, and the number of students we can reach, and we want every penny that we receive to go into improving the experience for our competitors and volunteers. That's why we're a fully registered charity in England and Wales.
