Competition Description:
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, HBB 2020 will be cancelled till further notice.

USCONEC and Catawba Science Center is proud to announce the 4th annual Hickory Bot Battles combat robot competition will be returning to Carpenter Hall the weekend of August 7-8, 2020. Featuring over 100 combat robot builders from across the country, robots weighing in at up to three pounds fight to the death in the 8’ x 8’ bullet-proof arena.

This year, CSC will be introducing the HBB Corporate Cup – a chance for local businesses to prove their engineering superiority via a single-elimination combat robot competition for glory and the cherished HBB Corporate Cup trophy. Register your corporate team and let your employees work together to build a three pound combat robot to destroy other local engineering companies that think they know what they’re doing. CSC will thank all participants and honor the winning team with a banner on our HBB page and an ad in the Hickory Daily Record. Experienced local combat robot builders will be available for advice, planning, and support to make sure your team’s combat robot experience is safe and successful.

This will be a Bug event, for full combat up to 3 pounds fighting in an 8 x 8 arena..
900 MHz, 2.4GHz, or spectrum radios are required. Any other frequency must have prior approval.

Standard double elimination and SPARC rules apply. (Except for HBB Corporate Cup)
