Session 1: Jul 6-17, 2020

Engines charged. Launchers filled. Robots ready and programmed. Ready, set, go! This is Battlebotics - show your robot’s might, and defeat the stealthy competitors! Set in a modern Utopia, young designers will create their robots inspired by future animals, terrains, and super powers from a future world. Your team will compete to become the champion of NuVu Battlebotics with awards for style and strength!! 

Students will learn about all the components that make their vehicle go vroom: motors, batteries, engines, radio signals, types of chassis and wheels, and robotic intelligence. They will experience the hands-on joy of drilling and building circuits before applying a custom paint job for the finishing touch. Then it’s off to the final challenge, where the robots will compete to be crowned champion of NuVu Battlebotics!
