Robotics teams create purpose-built robots each year, designed to play in highly competitive games. The robots operate autonomously as well as under the control of its student operators, who use game controllers to actuate about a dozen electric motors and pneumatic cylinders that power the robots during intense matches. Dreadbot team members have diverse and varied roles including programming, cheerleading, mechanical design, statistics, strategy, business planning, graphics and more. Many students learn new useful skills and become proficient on tools ranging from plasma cutters to 3D printers. Dexter students are strongly encouraged to consider joining the team. Kids ages 6 and up are invited to a 60 minute presentation of robotics demonstrations and hands-on participation. Registration is not required.
