Barker Robotics on the World Stage


It has been an incredibly successful competition season for Barker College’s robotics students, with a string of titles being awarded to both the VEX and FIRST teams.

The VEX Robotics Competition is the largest Robotics Competition in the world, with more than 20,000 teams. This year, Barker had three teams qualify to VEX Worlds; two from the Middle School in the VEX Robotics Competition and one from the Junior School for the VEX IQ Challenge.

The final result saw Barker’s 4613W – HyperSphere – win the Middle School Technology B Division, the Overall Technology division, and be named semi-finalists for the Overall VEX Worlds Championship – an incredible achievement to place them in the top eight teams in the world.

Barker’s Senior FIRST Robotics Competition team, the Barker Redbacks, has placed 6th globally on raw competition scores. They were also awarded the Chairman’s award for the school’s ongoing outreach and support of the community including establishing robotics at Barker’s Indigenous campus, Darkinjung Barker, and the establishment and continuing to support of the Springbots, the first FRC team in South Africa. The team also won the Engineering Excellence award for the quality of the design, construction and engineering process of the robot.

Year 11 student, Suzanne Brian won nomination as a Dean’s List Award winner. She will now compete at FRC Championships level as a Dean’s List Finalist. This is now the fourth Dean’s List Finalist that the school has had recognised since 2015.
