Second Annual Robot Jam & Joust

By The Hacktory (other events)

Saturday, April 15 2017 1:00 PM 4:00 PM

Come one, come all to the annual Hacktory fundraiser:  JunkBot JAM & JOUST 

It will be an afternoon of play, creativity, technical innovation, community, and just plain fun! 

Robot Enthusiasts: We welcome all robots, low-tech, high-tech, hacked toys, modified appliances and more. Each robot registered will compete in a set number of matches. Each match consists of 3 rounds. Points are awarded for winning a round, and robots can also compete for the People's Choice category. After all robots have battled, overall match winners will be determined, as well as an overall winner of the People's Choice. The top robots in both categories will be entered to win the Grand Prize, a complete 3D Printer kit provided by SeeMeCNC. Robots with high-tech features may be dealt a high-tech penalty. See complete rules here

Spectators: Have a great time learning about robots, help pick winners of the People's Choice category, have some snacks, and buy tickets to our great selection of raffle prizes.

This event was inspired in part by the Japanese Hebocon Event, or “Robot Battle for the Technically Un-gifted.”



All ages are welcome to attend this event. Young makers 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
