At KELVIN, we are continuously challenging ourselves to bring you the most innovative activities that will add a new dimension to your classroom. Our newest series, the Robotic Battle Ball Competition, is comprised of affordable, multi-discipline activities with invention, design and engineering in mind. The study and building of robots is covered as well as hydraulics, measurements, design, construction and, most importantly, working with a team. You will be amazed at the unique features or materials each team will come up with to give their robot an edge. These activities incorporate all the ingredients needed to make your class the center of attention at your school.
This complete system for conducting all-out robotic arm competition is an economical, one time expense for your school because you can use it with all robotic classes. The challenge is to design a robotic arm with an electromagnet head that picks up balls with metal screws through them. The first team to move six balls from the central container and put them in their team's ball return container is the winner. Robotic arm construction and team work throughout construction and competition are keys to winning.
The system includes: an assembled metal arena board (16"x47") with space to mount the robotic arms as well as the ball container, ball return tubes, balls with screws attached,  assembled hand controllers on metal bases (three per team),  switches for turning on/off the electromagnets (one per team), instructions, drawings PLUS  Robotic Battle Ball Robotic Arm Kits (enough essential parts for 4 teams - #841333 - see for content). Requires two 6V lantern batteries.
