Do you love the show BattleBots? Have you ever wanted to design, build, and compete with your own remote controlled fighting robot? If yes, then this camp is for you! With close supervision by Katapult Makerspace and Harrisburg University of Science and Technology instructors, campers will learn advanced skills in prototyping, electronics, engineering, and physics as they prepare their robot for a live remote control battle.  Students will be custom fabricating an Ant weight combat robot with a transmitter using our 3D prints, laser cutter, and other machines at the Katapult Makerspace. The goal is that students will use the same components to build their robots, however each student will have the ability to customize the body of their robot.  Students will create their own t-shirts and take-home their robot after the battle on the final day.

Students are required to bring a device that fits the following criteria. Laptops and tablets must be able to run Chrome or Safari. Laptops must have a minimum of 4 GB of RAM and an I3 core, and must be able to run Windows 7 or above for PC or MacOS 10.6 Snow Leopard or above for Mac. Both Apple and Samsung tablets are permitted if from a recent generation, however no Kindles will be allowed. iPads operating system must be within the last 3 iOS updates and Samsung tablets must be within the last 2 OS updates.
