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! Set in a modern Utopia, young designers will create their robots inspired by future animals, terrains, and super powers from a future world. In the arena, 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 soldering, drilling, and building circuits before applying a custom paint job for the finishing touch. Then it’s off to the arena where the robots will greet each other for NuVu Battlebotics!
