Had enough of Lego and coding? It's time to build a real robot in a real workshop! Discover new tools and techniques. Enjoy the hands-on modelling process then turn your cardboard trial into a full-metal beast! Perfect for ages 10+, or younger with support. Register now to enjoy Hamilton's own combat robotics club.
Tronbots is looking for a sponsor to support more of tomorrow's engineers. Get in touch if you'd like to support Tronbots!
Cardboard is a quick and easy way to get started. Just clip the parts on and make it work!
Having created a functional cardboard model, students critique and refine their idea.
Having refined their model, students are guided to carefully mark out their design from aluminium.
Once working models are complete, students trial their idea in the mini arena.
Creating your robot body from aluminium is the reward for spending time modelling and refining.
Having formed their aluminium shell, students work to finally fit their parts together.
The highlight for everyone is the final tournament in the battle arena. Watch out for that pit!
A proud moment when students graduate and look forward to the next level! Big effort and well done!
Having learnt the basics, students can register to build bigger and better bots.
