I’m going to assume that many of you reading this, at some point in your career or education, have designed or been on some sort of robotics team. Robotics teams for students served as a great introduction to engineering and STEM principles for engineers today, and robotics teams are growing around the globe.
Many of those who were fascinated with robotics went on to design robots professionally. Some design for professional purposes—Marc DeVidts, of the BattleBots Team Ice Wave, for example, started his own company designing robots (learn more about Marc’s story here…). While others just enjoy competing with other robotics teams in BattleBots.
So, what does it take to build a 250-pound fighting robot to compete with other skilled engineers? I’m not sure, but you can ask the experts next week at the next SOLIDWORKS LIVE event, July 8th @ 11am EST [Set your reminder here…] We will have three Battlebots teams on discussing how they design these massive fighting machines, how they got started, and what it’s like to compete at a BattleBots events. Be sure and watch LIVE, so you can get answers to your burning BattleBots questions. Hear from these team leaders:

- Jonathan Schultz, Team HUGE
- Brandon Zalinsky, Team P1
You can watch on several platforms:
