Participants must be 11 to 17 when the program starts.
What more do we need to say? It’s bot vs. bot in the Bolts & Bytes Battle Bot Arena! Get ready for 8-week crash course in building and battling your own combat robot. This class covers basic bot building, electronics, offensive weapon design, defensive strategy and more.
Combat bots are remote controlled and are built to Beetle Weight combat bot competitive specs. We provide all the hardware — you bring your competitive spirit, tinkering skills and be READY TO BATTLE!
Our goal is to build a local Combat Robot Competitive League for the Jacksonville area — This is your chance to get in early on what promises to be an exciting new community.
We recommend that students have taken our Electronics Exploration and/or some level of our 3D Printing classes to prepare for this Combat Robot class — but that’s not a requirement and any interested student is encouraged to join. Finished combat bots are not included in the cost of the class, but are available for purchase at the end of the class at an estimated cost of $75.
Please contact Bolts & Bytes Maker Academy office if you have any questions.
