The club, which meets every Thursday, have entered the Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge, a national competition for students aged 11-14, after success last year.
Last year Shuttleworth’s robotics team won the Best Robot Design and Programming Knowledge award at Preston’s College, against 44 other teams.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers Challenge involves programming a self-built lego robot to complete a range of tasks. This year the challenge is based on aviation missions.
Student Amber said: “We were inspired by the success of last year’s team to enter the Robotics Challenge again. I enjoy STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and the Robotics Club lets me take STEM a step further.”
The first round of the competition is in March at BAE Systems.
