Sundays, 3 PM – 5 PM
The concept of this program is to educate students 8 years and older on mechanics and electronics with fun and an internal competition.
Robot battling is poised to become a true sport of the future. You can join in this fantastic sport at PVNet and start with the Antweight Battlebots. We start with basic parts and a very basic battle bot to get up and running very quickly. After your first meeting new designs will come to light as well as ways to use electronics to control the robot and weapon. This offers an opportunity to apply CADCAM experience as well as electronics, and engineering experiences. By joining the Battlebot club students of all ages as well as professionals can be challenged to produce exciting Battlebots. All who join will have fun and have an outlet to express their creativity as well as learn from each other.
Cost: $200 per month
Discounts provided for registering for multiple months at a time.
