Battle Clash 2.0 Recap

Battle Clash 2.0 was the first event held at the community middle school event center following several weeks of Foundry-sponsored “robotics club” meetings where students learned how to build their own robots from RC toys. This event would be their first opportunity to test their creations in a battle setting. Because of the venue of this event hazards were not allowed due to concerns over participant safety and property integrity. To make up for this, an “obstacle course” mini event was introduced at the last minute to give participants an extra activity at the event.
