For some time I have been looking for a Robot club in the Baltimore/Washington area. I did find and joined Pennbots with my 10 and 11 year old grandsons, but they are a 2 hour drive from here add another hour to pick up the kids. Does anyone know of a closer group?
For those who haven't found them yet, Pennbots has competitions for Ant and Beetle class battle bots (1 and 3 pound) as well as Flea (150 gm) every 90 days or so. They have a standing prize for an autonomous bot that can win the competition. They are also attempting to have Maze, Line Following, and Mine Sweeping competitions for autonomous bots, but they didn't have enough entrants for the 12/16 competition. The thing I like most about them is they have competitors ranging from 7 to 70 or thereabouts.
