This class has been postponed. The new date will be posted soon.

Come learn about robots at BARN by building your own combat robot. Students will build a 'fairy weight' class (150g) combat robot. Students will choose one of the three combat robot kits to build. Assembly will require some soldering, so it is recommended that students either take the ETA soldering class or have soldering experience before taking the course.

Students will be given time to test their combat robots with the remote controller provided with their materials. A future course will allow students to bring in their robots to practice competing with others and develop their strategy for an eventual combat robot competition.

Learn about combat robots here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot_combat). You can also see the different types of robots in the fairy class here (https://grabcad.com/library/tag/battlebots) and watch an actual combat robot battle here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra7FG3G-JZE&t=223s).
