Welcome to Bugglebots!

Bugglebots is a combat robotics show which will be filmed and produced as a web-based mini-series. The aim is to present combat robotics as a fun, entertaining, educational and accessible way to get into robotics or other STEM subject. The main focus of the web series will be a Beetleweight competition consisting of 30 robots spread over 5 heats and a grand final.

Competitors from the UK and international competitors ranging from the USA to Germany will do battle to have a go at winning the coveted Bugglebots Trophy.
