Engines charged. Launchers filled. Robots ready and programmed. Ready, set, go! This is Battlebotics - you have 3 minutes to show your robot’s might, defend your territory and conquer an arena with other robots stealthily moving about you. 

In this studio, students will be constructing cardboard, remote-controlled robot vehicles that will compete in Odyssey Battlebotics, the West Coast's premier robot competition. In 3 minutes, each student team will maneuver their custom machine around a terrain filled with surprises and hidden traps. Student teams will be given a set of supplies, equipment, and tools that they can use to design and build their robots.
