BotsIQ is an educational program created by the producers of the wildly successful BattleBots television series in which homemade remote controlled robots faced-off in competition. As the television show grew in popularity, so did the number of student fans who wanted to build competitive robots of their own. In 2001, the creators of BattleBots started BotsIQ, the educational program. Through the process of robot building, student’s imaginations are captured as they design, build, and compete with their own robotic creations; and through this hands-on effort students gain practical knowledge of math, science, engineering, and manufacturing.
