Event Description

Welcome to our 2nd Annual ROBOTICON Rumble!  Held as part of our long-running ROBOTICON STEM Showcase - now in its 11th season - ROBOTICON's Combat Robotics competition is a relatively new addition to our suite of K-12 robotics and drone competitions, and an increasingly popular event.  Here's the basics:

Event Info 

  • Classes: Fairy, Ant, Beetle
  • A pre-paid registration of $20 per bot is required, which goes towards prize money for the top winners in each class.  Once your bot is approved, teams will get a link to pay their fee.
  • Prize Purse: Cash prize as a split on registration fees divided between first/second/third place and vie for the Rusty Wrench Award - which may be an actual rust wrench or a laser cut version, but it'll be a wrench!  - given to the top bot in each category!
  • Pits: Each team will have a table and power.  Bring extension cords, power strips, lipo bags, and chairs, in addition to robots and gear.
  • Pre-Event email will have more detailed information about the event.
