2 Week Day Camp 23 July - 3 August Cost £1100
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! Pupil teams will construct remote-controlled robot vehicles to compete to become the UK champions of Battlebotics 2018!
Each team will manoeuvre their custom machine around a terrain filled with surprises and hidden traps! Pupil teams will be given a set of supplies, equipment and tools that they can use to design and build their robots. Creativity is your only limitation! Learning about all the components that make their vehicle go vroom: motors, batteries, engines, radio signals, types of chassis and wheels, and robotic intelligence, pupils will ride the waves of radio frequency and modulation, understanding how transmitters and receivers communicate. Other topics of discussion include on-road versus off-road suspension, how RC models compare to full-sized cars, and levels of robotic intelligence (automaton, remote control, teleoperation, full autonomy). 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 Battlebotics!
