Course Description

Funded by a grant from the Fabricators and Manufacturing Association, do you love the TV show BattleBots? Would you love to get a start in combat robotics? You will build your very own plastic 1-pound Antweight or 150g combat robot. You will use 3D modeling software to design the robot chassis and structural components, then use a 3D printer to print your designs in plastic. In addition, you will build your own remote-control electronics with DC motors, speed controllers, a battery, and a radio control transmitter and receiver. Finally, you will assemble, test, and compete with your robot against others in a friendly tournament. We will practice engineering design and iteration, 3D computer modeling, 3D printing, soldering, tool use, mechanical testing, and electronics troubleshooting. Cost of the camp includes a robot to take home.
