Antweight Robot Wars Comes to Dorset!

From Atom Club and the Dorset Science & Technology Centre, we bring you the Dorset Robot Championship 2018! A year of STEM activity with local schools, culminating in a day robot building, talks, challenges and battles for everybody!

  • Robot obstacle course
  • Robot Racing
  • Challenges and STEM activities
  • Battles in the robot arena

NB: We’re not associated with the Robot Wars TV show, just inspired by it!


Now Open!

Registrations open now. Register your interest.

For Schools

What better way to encourage a love of STEM subjects than to design, build and battle little robots, inspired by the hit Robot Wars TV Show? We have a year of talks at schools, events at the centre and of course, a championship! Our exciting programme teaches electronics, physics, design, teamwork and discipline. It offers a talk in your school and a whole year of activity for the price of just a talk from other speakers!

For Robot Wars Fans

Whether you’re a family looking for a bonding project, a Robot Wars fan, or just someone that is looking for a challenge – this programme has something for you! Build your robot, socialise at our robot evenings, then compete in the championship in November 2018.

Corporate Team Building

Building a robot is a fun and unique team building activity. One of our roboteers will share their top tips with your team and let them try out our robots in our mobile safety arena. Build your robot, socialise at our robot evenings, then compete in the championship in November 2018.
