ABOUT US

To put it very simply, just a bunch of passionate kids. As an assembly of very diverse people, from all walks of life, with different interests, different strengths, and different weaknesses robotics seems to been the nucleus that united our mutual passions to really think, create and innovate in an engaging manner. Our teams consist of students of various ages, ranging from Year 9 (13) to Year 13 (18) all of whom study at Lynfield College, a high school in Central Auckland, New Zealand.
Lynfield College Robotics live within a small shed in our school. We survive on boxes upon boxes of shapes biscuits and we thrive on the thrill that comes with all aspects of robotics; from tinkering with gears, bending metal, dodgy wiring and breaking all the rules in the most law-abiding manner – we love what we do and we do what we love. Robotics.
To keep it short and sweet, we’re the current VRC (High School) World Robot Skills Champions and Excellence Award Holders, the highest award presented in the competition. We have also been VRC World Champions for 3 consecutive years before that. We’re also the current New Zealand National Champions, a title we’ve held for five seasons running and hope to retain heading into Nationals in February.

OUR SPONSORS

 

A huge Thank You to the sponsors of Lynfield College Robotics. Your contributions have helped us get where we are and also run a successful program for younger students who wish to get into the world of robotics!

Although winning National and World titles ultimately boils down to hardwork and passion on our end, maintaining world class robots also requires a heavy supply of resources, the cost of which really adds up. Furthermore, to compete at international events such as VEX Worlds in the US we need to be able to send a whole team of students whose flights and accommodation don’t come cheap. Ultimately, sponsors help us cover these costs associated with robotics and make it possible for us to compete to the best of our ability.
By sponsoring Lynfield College Robotics your company will be seen as supporting youth in the STEM fields and helping spark a whole new generation of not just engineers but young adults entering the workplace with a plethora of important skills at their disposal from teamwork, communication, improvisation and time management. Furthermore, by sponsoring Lynfield College Robotics your organization’s logo will be actively displayed upon our robots, banners and uniform where possible for publicity. Larger donations exceeding will also grant you the ability to name one of our robots as you wish. Lastly, we can collaborate with your organization to run interactive demonstrations with team and our robots in action where you also get a hands on opportunity to engage with our robots and team.
