MerseySTEM robotics challenges bring teams of students together from local schools to take part in a full-day event. Teams build their robots in the morning using the Protobot System from Vex Robotics and pit them against each other in the afternoon in a series of matches. All teams are supported by MerseySTEM, collaborating professionals and STEM Ambassadors throughout.

Robotics challenges enable students to understand a variety of design, science and engineering principles and develop leadership and problem solving skills. The events aim to inspire and excite students’ interest in robotics and to demonstrate the practical application of mathematics and engineering.
