XTREME BOTS

XtremeBotsLogo
Xtreme BOTS is the exciting hands-on program where students customize remote-controlled robots to face off in competition. The robot building process captures student’s imaginations as they design, construct and compete with their own robotic creations. Through practical application, students gain knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – all essential skills for manufacturing.
Ohio Robotics is working to expand the Xtreme BOTS competition in the coming years as well as support year-round STEM initiatives to further promote and engage students toward career paths in manufacturing.

Video Highlights from the Fall 2014 Competition

The Xtreme BOTS program is second to none-it is the gold standard for project based technical education. As a twenty year teacher it is thrilling to see my students become highly engaged in a rigorous manufacturing experience with industry mentor-ship. I count myself fortunate to be teaching in Dayton, Ohio where the Xtreme BOTS program is making a difference in the lives of students and teachers. I can’t remember the last time I saw my students get this excited!

The Xtreme BOTS project is an exciting way to combine our math, science, and technology curriculum into a hands-on, collaborative and engaging project that allows students to develop a working battlebot. It is so much fun to be involved in the learning and to be able to develop and build a working model that is able to compete in the Xtreme BOTS competition.
