WE'VE ADDED A SECOND CLASS IN SEPTEMBER - LINK (https://www.meetup.com/MakerFX/events/241398211/)
In this workshop, Nasir from Team Toxic Robotics (http://www.teamtoxicrobotics.com/) will help you build your first combat robot. You will learn the different designs of effective weapon types and the different weight classes. You will also be shown different sources to find parts and learn more about the sport of combat robotics. Nasir will also share the combat robot events that are hosted in Florida and around the US.
This workshop requires the purchase of a combat robot kit, and RSVP for the class date here on meetup that is best for you.
