YOU CAN HELP A LOCAL ROBOTICS CLUB BRING THEIR BATTLE BOT TO COMPETITION IN 2017!

Reno Robot Club is taking a battle bot to competition at the annual Roboagames in 2017 (Robogames.net) and we could use your help.

We are an independent club of volunteers that teach robotics to kids and adults in our spare time.  Through this building experience youths are learning wiring, welding, machining, basic electronics, engineering, and programming.  Yes, what we are learning is some hard stuff, but WE’RE HAVING SO MUCH FUN!  To see our team bots and accomplishments, please check out our page at RenoRobotClub.com

We hope to continue working every year with small groups of dedicated youth who have a passion for robotics and engineering.

Here is our bot so far.  We have been blessed and wish to thank CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada for their donation of all of our motors as well as our Loyal and Dedicated Mentors for their donation of welding machinery and equipment.

Here is what we need to get our Bot moving:

  1. (6) Battery packs plus charger(s) $1100
  2. (3) Motor controllers $830
  3. Steel for armor, weapon and modifications $800

Our Battle Bot “wish” list:

  1. Small enclosed trailer to transport tools and equipment to Robogames. (Find one used <$1500)
  2. Travel expenses for instructors and the kids to the Robogames Competition. (2 Mentors + 4 Kids $3000)

Please consider becoming a SPONSOR!  You can help make our dreams of destruction come true and get your name on our Bot!
