My name is Rob Grassi and I'm president of the Winchester Robotics
Team. I'm a senior in high school and from Massachusetts. WinRobotics
has been around for about 6 years, and has competed in both national and
regional BOTSIQ competitions since its creation. I teach our new
members about robotics and also work on designing our new robots. We
hope to bring a strong showing this year with three new 'bots. You can
learn more about what we're up to and what we've done on our
soon-to-be-created team page on this forum. Hope to see everyone in the
battlebox.

-Rob

Hi Rob,
I own FingerTech Robotics and have been interested in helping BOTSIQ but have always had trouble finding information. Perhaps with your experience I can finally get something going. Can I send you an email to continue this without cluttering the introductions thread?

Hey,

I've posted here before but wanted to introduce myself. I'm Badnik and I've been obsessed with robots since I was four. Me and my dad have just started building an antweight robot, and once we get it off the ground I'll start posting pics.

Hi Crouton,

Welcome to the forum! One of the best things that you can do when you're starting out is to go to a competition, and just watch and talk to other builders. It's really nice to see the robots in person and talk to their builders about how they work.

I'm not sure how close you are to Atlanta, but there will be a competition at the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire, Oct 6 for robots up to 3lbs, and I believe some larger ones will be on display.
http://makerfaireatl.com/

There's also a combat event at DragonCon, but that just passed a couple of weeks ago.

The best high school league is the National Robotics League:
http://gonrl.org/
They have regionals in Pennsylvania among other places. We're also trying to create a new regional in Tampa this coming February. The national competition will be in Indianapolis in May. The NRL weight limit is 15 lbs.

The Battlebots company itself has declined somewhat in recent years. But, I believe they will be holding 15lb events in Miami in February and April.

If you're looking into the bigger robots, the only competitions in the US are those hosted by Combots: Robogames and The Combots Cup:
www.robogames.net
www.combots.net
But they're out in San Francisco.
