The Competition is for years 11/12/13 and is centred around building autonomous robots to seek and collect as many cubes as possible in 3 minutes. For more information see the rules.


We will lend you a  robotics kit, free of charge, no strings attached. The kit will contain a Raspberry Pi 3, Power Board, Motor control board, lithium batteries and much more! This will help power the creations of our contestants and give plenty of flexibility to test unique design choices.



We want every team to be a success and so we will support every team the best we can. It can be a daunting task when trying to figure out how to get things done. Fear not as we have developed an impressive knowledge base (docs) in addition to a lively community centred around the Q&A forums. We at Hills Road will also provide mentoring to assist in times of need.
