RoboBots! Saturday, April 5th, 2008 at Meadville Area Senior High

What is RoboBots?
RoboBots is modeled on the BattleBots IQ program. BattleBots IQ (BBIQ) is an educational program created by the producers of the wildly successful BattleBots television series (in which homemade, remote controlled robots face-off in competition). As the television show grew in popularity, so did the number of student fans who wanted to build competitive robots of their own. It soon became evident that this activity, the sport of robots in competition, had the unique potential to impact middle school, high school and college students in a powerful and positive way: Through the process of robot building, student's imaginations are captured as they design, build and compete with their own robotic creations; and through this hands-on effort students gain practical knowledge of math, science, engineering and manufacturing.

In 2001, the creators of BattleBots started BattleBots IQ, the educational program comprising of: A Robotics Curriculum based on the National Curriculum Standards and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) mechanical engineering methodology; Teacher Training; and a National Competition where students showcase their custom built robots, and compete for top honors.


The reception to the BBIQ program in the educational, manufacturing and technology communities has been overwhelming. What started as a program for middle and high schools has grown to include post secondary schools and institutions. Manufacturing and technology sectors have been impressed with what BBIQ has done for workforce development, and creating an awareness of Industry that until now was lackluster.
