Course introduction

Enrichment courses are undertaken alongside your main studies and provide a great opportunity to learn new skills, develop existing talents and gain another qualification to support your UCAS entry and enhance your CV.

It’s fantastic opportunity to develop your science, engineering and teamwork skills by designing, building and programming a fully autonomous robot.

It’s open to all students whatever subjects you are taking.

The robot will compete against other robots from schools and colleges across the UK and Europe in an exhilarating and gruelling two day competition.

The whole thing is organised by Southampton University undergraduates who will provide assistance and support throughout the six months of the design and development stage.

The robot is built and tested in the workshop here at Brockenhurst College with extra help available at the ‘Tech Days’ held at Southampton University.

In the past four years teams from Brockenhurst College have managed one 2nd place and one 3rd place. If you think you’ve got what it takes – then rise to the challenge and perhaps we can win it this year!

This activity is very good for UCAS and job or apprenticeship applications. Especially if you are going into a science or engineering field.

It shows that you have the ability and commitment to work as part of a team on a large project

  • I chose Brock because I really wanted to study in an adult environment and I knew there was a good standard of teaching. It’s in a beautiful setting too.
