growingSTEMS is happy to offer a Combat Robotics summer camp focused around Termite Class Combat Robots! Competitors in grades 3-7th are able to participate in this 3-day camp. Each camp will run from Friday through Sunday, 12-4PM each day.
- Friday 12-4 – Introduction / Kit construction & decoration
- Saturday 12-4 – Driver skills activities and practice matches
- Sunday 12-4 – Round Robin Tournament
Camp sessions will be available for the following dates: June 24th – 26th, July 8th – 10th, and July 22nd – 24th. There will be 12 slots per camp and each camp will be limited to 3 of each robot design, so register early to ensure you’re able to compete!
The Termite Class is focused on combat robots that consist of wooden robot kits and small arena (3×3′) with a single knock-out pit. Termite Class robots compete to try and either push their opponent into the arena pit or remove their “kill-switch” magnet (a simple magnet on the back of each robot that can be knocked off during the match) during the 1-minute match. If the match timer ends with both robots still standing, a match judge will make the determination of who won based on how each robot operated, focusing on both driver aggression and control.
