3-2-1, activate! See locally-made robots battle to see who is the toughest and best engineered robot in the arena at this one-day extravaganza, presented by digital makerspace Te Atatu Peninsula Digital Lab (TAP:Lab). Robots are pre-built by the roboteers themselves, who will be available for questions, and (if you ask nicely) might even let you take home pieces of the the wrecked carcasses of fallen bots. If you wish to enter, taplab.nz will be running courses and making 3D printers available for contestants in the months prior to the contest.
Combat bots are just one part of the day! There will be robots of all shapes and sizes; see robot dancers, art robots, puzzle solving robots, play robot soccer, watch 3D printers, learn to code and much much more.
Come dressed as a robot enter the best dressed robot award!
