BattleBots: Reaching future engineers one violent battle at a time

I have three words for you. BattleBots. Is. Back. If you are a super-ultra-mega nerd like me, then you too have been cheering the return of BattleBots. The show, which originally aired in 2000, is the perfect combination of engineering, ingenuity and gratuitous violence. But you don't have to be a geek like me to love BattleBots. If you are a fan of jumping on your sofa as you root for your favorite fighter at the top of your lungs, then this show is for you. If you are a fan of underdog stories with little bots triumphing over larger, menacing bots, then this show is for you. If you are a fan of STEM education and getting kids involved in engineering, then this show is for you.
