The SCRC holds three events a year. One in January, one in May, and one in September.
January focuses on including the audience in fun exhibition matches. Our intention is to get you hooked and see you at the next event with a robot of your own! Matches include King of the Hill, 2-on-2 Bot Soccer, Can Clearing, and the Pinball Gauntlet! The winter event sometimes moves ahead or back a month depending on the venue. We have held events in shopping centers, schools, the Saskatoon Fireworks Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival, Wakeride, and every three years at the University’s “Cameco Spectrum” Science & Engineering Expo. If you want to drive a robot, this one is for you!
The May event is the Kilobots RoboPalooza at Saskatoon Maker Faire. This event is an exhilarating 2-vs-2 gladiator-style tournament with twice the destruction potential for each and every match! Between the tournament matches, audience members are invited to drive robots in a number of games and challenges.
The September event is the Kilobots Canadian National Championship and is held in conjunction with the Saskatoon Entertainment Expo. This is one you don’t want to miss! Teams from across Canada, the USA and the UK travel to Saskatoon to compete for thousands of dollars in prizes and the coveted “Kilobots Cup”. Meet teams (and robots!) that have competed on BattleBots and Robot Wars, and at the International RoboGames.
