The Robobrawl organization is an international combat robotics group which operates 30 lb and 1 lb competitions. Our main event of the year takes place at the annual University of Illinois Engineering Open House in March. Throughout the rest of the year, local teams compete in smaller-scale 1 lb competitions (see 1 Lb Division About tab for more information).
Our goal is to educate aspiring engineers through real-world-applicable projects, teamwork and communication. Planning and hosting competitions for one of the most exciting robot applications gives students a chance to gain valuable engineering experience outside of the classroom. Historically, our competitors have been college teams, but our competitions are open to everyone!
