Have ADVANCING ROBOTS at your next EVENT

(Birthday Party, Fundraiser, etc)

If your group loves robots or building things,

what's better ENTERTAINMENT than

SUMO 'BOTS!

 

WHAT IS IT?

An exciting, fun and creative hands-on activity.

WHAT DO THE GUESTS DO?

Working in teams of 2, they'll add modifications to their 'bot, then try out their design in the SUMO RING! The robots are programmed to find and "wrestle" the other robot. A team's 'bot wins if it pushes the other 'bot out of the ring or over on its back. During the hour-long event, they'll make multiple improvements on their design, making it an increasingly skillful SUMO 'BOT!

WHAT DOES ADVANCING ROBOTS PROVIDE?

Pre-Programmed Robots, parts to build with, and enthusiastic expert coaching

WHAT DO I PROVIDE?

The guests, the space and 1 or more adults to help with “crowd control.”

WHAT KIND OF SPACE DO I NEED?

For up to 12 guests, a mostly-cleared-out large family room, conference room or one-car garage.

For more guests, larger would be necessary (like a 2-car garage).

In any space, the floor must be reasonably smooth (cement, low-pile carpeting, etc).

SOUNDS GOOD – WHAT'S IT COST?

$150 for up to 12 guests,

$250 for 13 to 20 guests (this lets us bring another robot-coach)

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

ROBOTICS CAMPS

2014

Our mission is to teach students engineering, logic, science, math, and technology through fun and challenging teamwork exercises.

Advancing Robots provides high quality, innovative and challenging programs to children that encourage their creativity and thinking skills through team centered and project based learning. Through our classes, children learn more than basic technology operations and concepts. Our activities are designed to trigger children’s active imaginations and build their self-confidence in a fun and safe environment.

Levels:
Young Builders (Grades 1-3)
Young Inventors (Grades 4-6)
FLL BootCamp Grades (6-9)

Throughout our six years, we have grown from teaching only a few classes in Round Rock to teaching several dozen classes all over Austin and its surrounding areas. Our success can also be shown by our students. They leave camp each day overjoyed and greatly anticipating the next day.

Our camps open the door to innovation and creativity through technology. Camps are held throughout Austin and Round Rock area.
