Robot Competition Workshops
NMT faculty and students have prepared a basic bot kit including: parts, parts list, instructions, and videos. The program is designed to get the student or team an operational bot with defensive and passive weaponry in under an hour. From there the NMT students and faculty will get the team started on researching options for improvements, modifications, and additions to the bot. We will present engineering design methodology for your team or class to use and teach an engineering decision making process. This process will include how to decide what improvements to prioritize and which design modifications add the greatest value to the bot.

General Workshop Information
The basic bot kits are an arduino based robot with 3D printed and machined frame components. Parts cost very over time but currently(2022) between (approx) $150 to $250 per kit depending on the type of kit and market rates and NMT can pre-assemble the kits, or provide you with a set of links to purchase kit components.
The original bot does not require the class to code so the initial workshop can be completed with out computers or arduino software. However, design modifications (such as adding reverse driving functionality) will require the students to learn how to read the arduino code and modify it.
